Diodes Incorporated Menu Close


Our portfolio of charger controllers provide fast, reliable charge termination in both NiCd and NiMH battery applications, power tools, and consumer electronics. We also offer fully integrated single-cell Li-ion battery charger ICs, which operate in a constant-current/constant-voltage (CC/CV) charging profile, without employing external FETs or blocking diodes. These devices feature:

  • Five charging states for different battery conditions
  • Excellent battery protection and full-charge detection schemes
  • Fuel-gauge counter that accounts for battery self-discharge compensation
  • Key delay functionality to reject multiple inputs at Tact switch (about 0.125s ignorance)
  • Internal voltage regulator
  • Integrated DC/DC step-down controller

Charger FAQs

Is there a replacement for an obsolete part?

Not all obsolete parts will have a direct replacement. However, we recommended that you contact your regional sales office.

What are the types of jitter?

There are several types of jitter, but the main ones are: cycle-to-cycle jitter, period jitter, half period jitter, and peak-to-peak jitter. Jitter terminology can be found in AB36: Jitter Measurement Techniques at Application Brief No. 36 or Application Note No. 27.

What is the lead finish for Pericom products? What about lead-free?

All Pericom's products that are not lead-free are composed of 85% Sn and 15% Pb. For lead-free products, they are composed of 100% matte Sn. Lead-free products are marked and ordered with the letter "E" suffix at the end of the part number.

Where can I find Mean Time Before Failure (MTBF) or Failures In Time (FIT) values for Pericom products?

FIT and MTBF data can be found at Pericom's Quality webpage.

Where can I find the information on your Pb-free and "Green" packaging?

Lead (Pb)-Free and Green information can be found on individual datasheets or Pb-Free & Green Page.
