Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (Germany) [NASDAQ: MXIM] has announced that it is now sampling the MAX77301 Li+ battery charger. It integrates the intelligence to enumerate with the host device, automatically identify the adapter type, and then determine the fastest rate to charge a battery. With advanced temperature monitoring, the MAX77301 modulates the charge current and battery regulation voltage automatically to maximize safety in any temperature environment. Key advantages of the MAX77301 include:

  • A maximized charge current: automatically detects charge source and sets the highest allowable charge current.
  • An optimized user convenience: Smart Power Selector technology allows a portable device to operate with a discharged battery or no battery.
  • High flexibility: fully programmable I2C interface; charges from a USB port.
  • Easy implementation: no extra software required for charger detection or USB enumeration.
