LTC4054 - Standalone Linear Li-Ion Battery Charger with Thermal Regulation

The LTC4054 is a constant-current/constant-voltage linear charger for single cell lithium-ion batteries. It features internal MOSFET and doesn't require any sense resistors. It also features thermal regulation during high power operations. The charge voltage is fixed at 4.2V and the charge current can be programmed using external resistor. When the input supply is removed, the LTC4054 automatically enters a low current state, dropping the battery drain current to less than 2µA. The LTC4054 can also be put into shutdown mode, reducing the supply current to 25µA. The LTC4054 also features charge current monitor, undervoltage lockout, automatic recharge, and a status pin to indicate charge termination and the presence of an input voltage.
