PMIC & Multifunction

Many of Linear Technology's battery management products combine the functionality of our standalone battery chargers with one or more other functions.  Power management IC (PMIC) products combine battery charging, PowerPath control and one or more DC-DC regulators for a complete power solution for handheld products.  Linear Technology's PowerPath products and architecture allow the load to be powered from both Vin and the battery, ensuring shorter charging times and more flexibility for the portable device designer.  They also enable "instant on" in systems with a depleted battery.  Other features combined with our battery chargers include dual inputs for USB and Wall Adapter, switching regulators, comparators, or LDOs.
