BQ35100PWR Texas Instruments

BQ35100PWR Texas Instruments Profile

The BQ35100PWR is a battery fuel gauge integrated circuit (IC) designed and manufactured by Texas Instruments. It is a battery management IC that enables accurate state-of-charge (SOC) and remaining capacity estimation for rechargeable lithium-ion (Li-ion) and Lithium-Polymer (Li-polymer) batteries.

This IC uses the patented Impedance Track ™ technology to measure battery SOC in real-time, with high accuracy (> 99.5%) and low drift, providing stability and longevity to the battery packs.

The BQ35100PWR monitors advanced battery health information, including voltage, temperature, and impedance, which allows fine-grained diagnostic capabilities to extend the life of the batteries. The device runs on an I2C interface with a host system, providing commands for easy customization of safety settings and charge/discharge control algorithms.

Furthermore, its small package size and low-power characteristics allow it to fit into handheld devices.
