High Voltage, High Current Controller Enables Multi-Topology mW to kW Battery Charging

February 27, 2012 // By Steve Knoth, Linear Technology
The LTC4000 is a high voltage, high current battery charging controller and PowerPath manager that forms a powerful battery charging and power management solution when combined with any externally compensated (ITH/VC pin) DC-DC converter. Virtually any topology switcher is compatible, including (but not limited to) buck, boost, buck-boost, SEPIC, and flyback.
