1.2
bq25120A IC Features
The bq25120A is a highly-integrated battery charge management IC that integrates the most common
functions for wearable devices: linear charger, regulated output, load switch, manual reset with timer, and
battery voltage monitor. The low quiescent current during operation and shutdown enables maximum
battery life. The device supports charge currents from 5 mA to 300 mA. The input current limit, charge
current, PWM output voltage, LDO output voltage, and other parameters are programmable through the
I2C interface. The battery is charged using a standard Li-Ion charge profile with three phases: precharge,
constant current, and constant voltage.
1.3
bq25120A EVM Features
The bq25120A EVM is a complete battery power management module for evaluating compact, highlyintegrated, flexible, high efficiency, linear charging solution for single cell, Li-Ion and Li-Polymer batterypowered systems used in wearables and low-power portable applications. Key EVM features include:
• Configurable 300-mA buck regulator (1.8-V default)
• 700-nA typical IQ with PWM enabled
• 0.5% accurate battery voltage regulation (configurable from 3.6 V to 4.65 V in 10-mV steps)
• Configurable termination current down to 500 µA
• 2.5 mm × 2.5 mm WCSP package and 6 external components for minimum solution
• Power path management for powering the system and charging the battery
• Power path management enables < 150-nA ship-mode battery quiescent current for longest shelf life
• Push-button wake-up and reset with adjustable timers
