The BQ24721 is a battery charger and system power selector IC (integrated circuit) manufactured by Texas Instruments. It is commonly used in various portable electronic devices, such as laptops and tablets, to manage the charging of the battery and the power distribution within the system.
Part Number: BQ24721
Function: Adv Multi-Chemistry Mutli-Cell Sync Switch-Mode Charger Syst Power Selector (Rev. F)
Package : VQFN 32 Pin Type
Manufacturer: Texas Instruments ( https://www.ti.com/ )
This IC allows for the selection and prioritization of power sources, such as AC adapters or external power supplies. It can handle power path management, enabling the system to power the load directly from the adapter or from the battery, depending on the available power source.
The bq24721 is a high efficiency synchronous battery pack charger with high level of integration for portable applications. This device implements a high performance analog front-end that interfaces to the system power management micro-controller through a simplified SBS-like SMBus interface.
The dynamic power management (DPM) function modifies the charge current depending on system load conditions, avoiding ac adapter overload.
High accuracy current sense amplifiers enable accurate measurement of either the charge current or the ac adapter current, allowing termination of nonsmart packs and monitoring of overall system power.
The adapter isolation diode can be bypassed or entirely replaced with an external MOSFET using a control signal provided by the bq24721, thus reducing overall power dissipation.
