CHIBA, Japan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ABLIC Inc. (hereinafter “ABLIC”), a semiconductor manufacturer, launched the S-8255A/B Series, a monitoring IC for 3- to 5-serial cell batteries.
The new product, the S-8255A/B Series has the following features. (1) In addition to common overcharge and overdischarge protection functionalities, it also provides temperature protection to enable configuration of circuits offering even greater safety. (2) A power-saving function prevents dark current from causing loss of battery pack capacity during shipping. (3) An overcharge detection voltage accuracy of ±20mV and a low power consumption of 19uA max. despite high performance place it among the top performers in the industry.
The switching pins can be used to extend protection to 3, 4 or 5 serial cells. The cascade function of the S-8255A Series allows you to configure protection circuits comprising six or more cells to accommodate a wide variety of applications.
1. Temperature protection function that monitors four types of temperatures
2. Power-saving function eliminates depletion caused by dark current
3. The accuracy of overcharge detection voltage is ±20mV; power consumption is 19μA max. despite high performance
- Power tools, cordless vacuum cleaners, robot vacuum cleaners, drones, ESSs, UPSs, industrial devices, etc.
Inheriting the semiconductor business of Seiko Instruments Inc., ABLIC Inc. is an IC manufacturer pursuing the further development of analog semiconductors.
