LTC3105 Single-Cell Photovoltaic NiMH Trickle Charger

Single-Cell Photovoltaic NiMH Trickle Charger

The LTC3105 is a high efficiency step-up DC/DC converter that can operate from input voltages as low as 200mV. A 250mV start-up capability and integrated maximum power point controller (MPPC) enable operation directly from low voltage, high impedance alternative power sources such as photovoltaic cells, TEGs (thermoelectric generators) and fuel cells. A user programmable MPPC set point maximizes the energy that can be extracted from any power source. Burst Mode operation, with a proprietary self adjusting peak current, optimizes converter efficiency and output voltage ripple over all operating conditions.
