DUAL CHANNEL SINGLE CELL LINEAR LITHIUM BATTERY
CHARGER WITH 28V OVP and PROGRAMMABLE CHARGE TIMER
Description
Pin Assignments
BAT
The APM8601 is a dual input channel linear Li-Ion charger
for portable equipment that is optimized for small formfactor applications.
The charge algorithm in the APM8601 covers all the charge
requirements for a single Li-Ion battery cell. Included is
pre-charging for deeply discharged cells, constant current /
constant voltage fast charging and a top-off feature to bring
the cell safely to a full-charge level.
The battery is constantly monitored for overvoltage, charge
time and cell temperature to ensure safe charging. A fault is
triggered once the charge time exceeds a value that is
programmable using a single capacitor and the temperature
measurement is achieved through a thermistor positioned
close to the battery cell.
The APM8601 automatically selects the USB or DC input,
depending on which is valid (DC has priority if both are
valid). The charging current from the USB input is set to
100mA or 500mA based on the logic level of the USEL
input.

Description
The battery is charged via this pin and the BAT voltage is constantly monitored.
Connect a bypass capacitor between BAT and GND (2.2µF).
The maximum charge current is programmed using a resistor from SETI to GND.
This also determines the prequal current charging level and top-off threshold.
To monitor the battery temperature, connect a 10kΩ NTC thermistor. Place this
Thermistor Input thermistor as close as possible to the battery. Connect THM to GND if
temperature measurement is not required.
Ground
Ground connection.
Connecting a capacitor from CT to GND will set the time-outs for prequal, top-off
Charge Timing
and fast-charge. Connecting CT direct to GND disables these timers.

The charger is enabled when this input is low. To start the charger connect EN

USB supply input. Connect a bypass capacitor (1µF) from USB to GND.
When a valid input source is connected, this open-drain output is pulled low.
Open-drain output that indicates the charging status. It is active only in the fastcharge state and goes high-impedance when the charger is either disabled or in
prequal or top-off mode.
DC supply input. The recommended input voltage is between 4.32V and 7V. This
input is capable of withstanding up to 28V. Connect both DC pins together on the
PCB. It is recommended to connect a bypass capacitor (1µF) from DC to GND.
If the prequal or fast-charge timers expire and the charging threshold voltage is
not reached, FLT (open-drain output) will go low. Remove the fault by cycling
power or raise EN .
For optimal thermal performance connect to copper on PCB (electrically this can
be GND).

INPUTS
DC
Pins 12 and 13 are the DC input. This input will allow charging from input voltages between 4.15V and 7V, and can
withstand up to 28V without device damage although charging is disabled above 7.5V (typ.).
USB
Pin 9 is the USB power input. This input will charge with input voltages from 4.15V to 7V. The charging current drawn
from USB is selected using the USEL pin, either at 95mA (1 USB power allocation unit) or 475mA (5 USB power allocation units,
High Power). Note that RSETI has no effect on USB charging currents in the Charge state, but RSETI does affect the Prequal
current when charging from USB. This pin will also withstand up to 28V, but charging is disabled above 7.5V (typ.).
If both DC and USB are connected and valid, power will be drawn from DC with charge current set by RSETI. USB and
USEL will be ignored.
GND
System ground connection.
EN
Pin 8 is the enable pin of the device. When pulled low the device will operate normally. When high, the device will
remain in the disabled state. For auto-starting, connect pin 8 directly to GND.

Pin 2 allows the charge currents to be programmed.

The thermistor connection is on pin 3. This allows the battery temperature to be monitored using a 10k NTC thermistor,
which should be placed as close as possible to the battery cell. If no thermistor is used then this input should be connected
directly to ground. The charger will operate when there is less than 315Ω on this input (i.e., no thermistor connected); will be
disabled when there is between 315Ω and 3.94kΩ; enabled when between 3.94kΩ and 28.3kΩ; and disabled above 28.3kΩ.

Functional Description (Cont.)
USEL Pin 6 allows the selection of the USB charging current. When low, I BAT is limited to 95mA (one USB power allocation
unit) and when High IBAT is limited to 475mA (5 USB power allocation units, High Power), when drawing power from the USB
input. This pin does not affect the device operation when power is being drawn from DC.
CT
The Charge Timer input on pin 5 allows selection of how long the system timers for Prequal, Charge and Top-off states
last. They are set by selecting the value of capacitor, CCT:
 CCT 
TCHARGE  334 min 

 68nF 
 CCT 
TPREQUAL  TTOPOFF  34.8min 

 68nF 
The charge timer will hold its current value if the charging was stopped via the thermistor and continue when the battery is in a
valid temperature range for charging.
OUTPUTS
BAT
Pins 1 and 7 are the current-controlled charging outputs for the battery cell. They should be connected together and to
the positive terminal of the battery. The chip monitors the voltage on these pins. There should be a 2.2µF capacitor connected
from BAT to GND.
POK
The POK flag on pin 10 is pulled low when a valid power input is available on either DC or USB inputs. It will go high
when no valid power is available and the device will enter the Disable state.
CHG
The CHG flag at pin 11 is pulled low when the device is in the Charge state. It will be high in Prequal and Top-off states.
If the thermistor trips the circuit into the THM state (from Prequal or Charge states), CHG will hold its previous value.
FLT
The FLT flag on pin 14 indicates a battery fault, as determined by a time-out in either the Prequal or Charge states. If
the battery voltage does not reach 3V after the prequal timer (default 34.8mins), or does not reduce charging current to 7.5%
after the charge timer (default 334mins), this indicates that the battery has failed or is failing and this will trigger the FLT flag.
This flag will not automatically reset, and can only be cleared by cycling the power input or the EN pin.

CHARGING PROCESS DESCRIPTION
The charging process is as follows, working through the state diagram.
The device will begin in the Disable state as the input power supply ramps from 0V. Once the input power supply has got into
the valid range (4.15V – 7V), and the device is enabled then it will enter the Prequal state. This state allows for slow charging of
a severely discharged battery. If the battery is already partially charged then the condition to move into the Charge state is met.
If it is not then the slow charge will increase the battery voltage until it can enter the Charge state, or if the voltage does not rise
sufficiently before the charge timer runs out (set using the capacitor on the CT pin) then the device will go into the Fault state,
indicating that the battery cell may be damaged or has failed and is not taking charge. In the Prequal state the battery
temperature can be monitored with a 10k NTC thermistor connected to the THM pin, and if the battery temperature goes out of
range (above ~50°C or below ~0°C, depending on thermistor choice) then charging will be suspended with the device going into
the THM state.
Once the battery has charged to a level of 3V, the device enters the Charge state, allowing faster charging of the battery in its
normal voltage range, with 10 times the current used in the Prequal state. For information on setting the charge currents, see
the functional description of the SETI pin. Again, the battery temperature is monitored and charging will be suspended if the
temperature goes out of range. The Charge state will last until the current drawn by the battery drops to 7.5% of the full charge
current. The device will then enter the Top-Off state, maintaining battery voltage and providing top-off charging current for the
time defined by the CT value. Once that timer completes, the device will enter the Done state, with zero battery current. If the
battery voltage falls below 4.05V then the device will automatically return to the Charge state.
