Demo board designed to quickly demonstrate battery charger
Design & Manufacture
Analog Devices DC2374B Demo Board is intended to quickly and easily demonstrate the LTC4013 Battery Charger. The charger is a 60V Synchronous Buck Multi-Chemistry Battery Charger with a two-stage CC/CV charge cycles, three and four stage lead acid and Li-Ion battery algorithms. The Demo Board is set up to run from a 21.5V to 35V supply or from a solar panel and can charge a six-cell lead-acid battery at 5A.
High power charging is accomplished with optional input and output capacitors as well as large inductor pads, and parallel top and bottom FET pads. Using external resistors and a capacitor, the demo board configures the operating frequency, low battery voltage setting, charge voltage, and timing. The TIMER and two tri-state mode pins set different charging algorithms.
