Chargers pack consumer extras

Camarillo, Calif. – Semtech’s SC805 and SC806 battery charger ICs tout advanced functionality in a super small package for consumer electronics applications including cable chargers, personal media devices, and mobile phones. “The high-current level and charging profile flexibility of the SC805 and SC806 are critical key features, and the good news for designers is that all of this comes in a small, less expensive package,” said C.S. Mitter, director of Power Management for Handheld Products. “Add to this an advanced thermal design, and it means these new chargers are well-positioned for the next generation of consumer devices.”
