The Industry's First Dual-Mode Batterry Charger IC
The Industry's First Dual-mode Batterry Charger IC
The BD99954GW/MUV generates a charging voltage from 3.07 to 19.2V for 1 to 4 cells through boost-buck control for USBPD. In addition, the industry's first dual-input charging system automatically switches charging operation without an MCU using an original built-in charging adapter function. Support is provided for both USBPD and USB BC 1.2, facilitating configuration of dual-mode systems capable of simultaneous charging via USBPD, wirelessly, or from an AC adapter.

ROHM Chip Resistors for Current Detection
ROHM chip resistors for current detection
ROHM shunt resistors were developed using metallic material processing technology cultivated over many years to ensure compatibility with a wide range of applications, from portable devices such as smartphones to automotive and industrial systems requiring a greater degree of reliability. This allowed ROHM to adopt a special high performance alloy for the resistive element that provides high accuracy current detection with excellent temperature characteristics.
