General Description:

The CN3086 is a complete constant-current /constant voltage linear charger for 3-cell NIMH batteries. The device contains an on-chip power MOSFET and eliminates the need for the external sense resistor and blocking diode. An on-chip adaptive cell can adjust charging current automatically based on the output capability of input power supply, so CN3086 is ideally suited for solar powered system. Thermal feedback regulates the charge current to limit the die temperature at about 132℃ during high power operation or high ambient temperature. The regulation voltage in constant voltage (CV) mode is internally fixed at 4.2V with 1% accuracy when battery temperature is 25℃, and is variable with battery temperature in cooperation with an external NTC thermistor. The charge current can be set externally with a single resistor, the minimum charge current can be set down to 3mA, which makes CN3086 very suitable for charging ultra-small capacity battery. When the input supply is removed, the CN3086 automatically enters a low power sleep mode, dropping the battery drain current to less than 3uA.

Other features include undervoltage lockout, automatic recharge, JEITA-compliant battery temperature monitoring, over charge current protection and charging indicator.

The CN3086 is available in 6-pin SOT23 package.
