3887The MB3887 is a DC/DC converter IC suitable for down-conversion, using pulse-width (PWM) charging and enabling output voltage to be set to any desired level from one cell to four cells. These ICs can dynamically control the secondary battery’s charge current by detecting a voltage drop in an AC adapter in order to keep its power constant (dynamically-controlled charging) . The charging method enables quick charging, for example, with the AC adapter during operation of a notebook PC. The MB3887 provides a broad power supply voltage range and low standby current as well as high efficiency, making it ideal for use as a built-in charging device in products such as notebook PC. This product is covered by US Patent Number 6,147,477.
