A Circuit for charging NiCd, NiMH and Lithium-Ion Batteries.PWM 500kHz with Soft Start and Shutdown Control. The LT1510 can charge batteries ranging from 2V to 20V. Ground sensing of current is not required and the battery’s negative terminal can be tied directly to ground. A saturating switch running at 200kHz (500kHz for LT1510-5) giveshigh charging efficiency and small inductor size.
Uses MAX712/MAX713 fast charge controllers. PCB Design too. The only difference between them is the battery-fully-charged sensing method. The MAX713 is designed for NiCd batteries, while the 712 is for NiMh batteries.
This is part of the CC1125 Development Kit - The kit includes the
SmartRF Transceiver Evaluation board (TrxEB), which has a number of
useful features for development of prototype software, as well as USB
connectivity making it possible to connect the board to a PC and control
the radio from SmartRF Studio.
