Active-Semi touts its ACT2800 suite of power bank IC solutions as a fully-integrated single-chip solution that can extend the battery life of smartphones and tablet computers. The series includes the ACT2801 and ACT2802 devices. The product line is designed to integrate the complete power bank functionality into one system-on-a-chip.

Power bank chipsets on the market today require multiple ICs, such as micro controller units (MCUs), to perform the charging and battery management functions in addition to several discrete components. The company said the ACT2800 family reduces the system footprint and minimises design complexity, while leaving room for larger batteries and reducing total system cost.

The ACT2801 device supports output current up to 1.5A, while the ACT2802 supports output current up to 2.1A to reduce charging time when using larger batteries.

The ACT2800 portfolio has 95 per cent power conversion efficiency, low battery leakage current of under 10uA extends battery discharge cycle and programmable current limiting. Its protection features include over-temperature protection, over-current protection, over-voltage protection, and short-circuit protection.

The ACT2801 and ACT2802 devices are now in production.
