STC3115 delivers truly accurate, long-term fuel-gauging
This tiny chip, the
, can be used in high-volume handheld electronics, and has already been selected by Samsung for some of its recent smartphones. Battery charge indicators, – or fuel gauges, - have become essential for managing devices such as smartphones, laptops or digital cameras. To enhance fuel-gauging accuracy, ST has combined several important advances in its latest adaptive fuel-gauge IC, the STC3115. The STC3115 uses both sets of measurements continuously, with OptimGauge™, an adaptive algorithm that tracks the state of charge and corrects the battery model.
