The EVM provides a convenient method for evaluating the performance of a charge management
and system power solution for portable applications using the bq24031. A fully designed and tested module is presented. The bq24030/1 has a LDO 6 V regulator connected to the OUT pin. The intent of this charger is to provide a solution for using an inexpensive unregulated adaptor to power the charger. When unloaded, a 5bq24030VDC adapter peak charges to ∼8 V, but when loaded it quickly drops closer to 5 V. A The charger is designed to deliver up to 1.5 A of continuous current to the system or charger for one-cell Li-ion or Li-polymer applications. The charger is programmed from the factory to deliver 1 A of charging current.
