Summit Microelectronics has introduced two more members of its third-generation programmable battery charger integrated circuit (IC) family.
The SMB136 and SMB137B employ Current Path technology, providing dual input source (USB or AC/DC) with arbitration, dual output for system and battery and system operation with a dead or missing battery.
Both products support all battery charging standards:
- USB 2.0 Specification,
- USB On-The-Go Supplement,
- USB Battery Charging Specification 1.0,
- IEEE1725 Standard,
- Chinese USB Charging Specification, and others.
Furthermore, the SMB136 and SMB137B are the only battery charger ICs with CurrentPath to detect the input source type (USB host/hub, AC/DC, etc.).
