App note: How to achieve greater accuracy in battery capacity readings for portable designs

Sunday, December 2nd, 2018

App note from Maxim Integrated on using fuel gauge IC to obtain accurate battery state of charge readings. Link here (PDF) Because a product’s runtime is limited by battery capacity, it’s critical to have a precise method for measuring the remaining battery capacity to avoid an unexpected shutdown. This application...

App note: Li-ion battery and gauge introduction

Sunday, October 7th, 2018

Richtek app note for Li-ion battery definitions and gauge introduction. Link here SOC is defined as the status of available energy in the battery and usually expressed as percentages. Because the available energy change depends on different charging/discharging currents, temperatures and aging effects, the SOC could be defined more clearly...
