Maxim fuel gauges for Li-ion handhelds


Among applications for  these battery characterisation-free devices are handheld gaming systems, remote controls, smart home devices, and  USB Type-C portable devices.

The MAX17260 and MAX17261, which feature the ModelGauge m5 EZ algorithm, aim to  allow designers to maximize their devices’ runtime by preventing premature or sudden device shutdowns, while maintaining a smaller battery size.

The fuel gauges, which are housed in a 1.5mm x 1.5mm package, feature a quiescent current of 5.1µA to minimize draining the battery during long periods of standby time.

The products allow designs to be quickly done without battery characterization or calibration.
