Battery charger 12V 5A(min)

Posted by: cth000182 on Thu, 11/18/2021

Any reference designs for a 2 stage (or more) 12V, 5A (minimum) battery charger? i.e. CC (or constant power) to set voltage, then CV

I found a few within the resources, but wanted to reach out if anyone else had any luck? Also, any dev kits for such an application?

Thanks in advance!

Hi cth000182

Thanks for considering using Power Integrations Product.

We have a reference design for battery charger which uses HiperLCS and LinkSwitch.

Also, may I inquire what are your charging specifications? Why do you need a 2 stage for a 60W battery charger?
I can recommend to look at InnoSwitch3 CP product to use on your project.

Thanks.
