LT3652 Solar Battery Charger Maintains High Efficiency in Low Light

Jay Celani - Staff Design Engineer Oct 31st 2013
An important characteristic of any solar panel is that it achieves peak power output at a relatively constant operating voltage (VMP) regardless of illumination level (see Figure 2). The LT3652 2A battery charger exploits this characteristic to maintain a solar panel at peak operating efficiency by implementing input voltage ...
