IC revisionA

Description

The MCP1631HV Multi-Chemistry Battery Charger demonstrates Microchip’s high-speed Pulse Width Modulator (PWM), MCP1631HV, used in a multi-chemistry battery charger application. When used in conjunction with a microcontroller, the MCP1631HV will control the power system duty cycle to provide output voltage or current regulation. The PIC16F883 microcontroller can be used to regulate output voltage or set current, switching frequency and maximum duty cycle.The MCP1631HV generates the duty cycle and provides fast overcurrent protection based upon various external inputs. External signals include the switching frequency oscillator, the reference voltage, the feedback voltage and the current sense. The output signal is a square-wave pulse. The power train used for the MCP1631HV Multi-Chemistry Battery Charger is a Single-Ended Primary Inductive Converter (SEPIC). The MCP1631HV microcontroller is programmable, allowing the user to modify or develop their own firmware routines to further evaluate the MCP1631HV Multi-Chemistry Battery Charger in this application.
