Implementing pack-side battery gauges in portable devices is easier and more secure, Maxim asserts, with its ModelGauge m5 portfolio of MAX17201/MAX17205 and MAX17211/MAX17215.
Fuel gauging can be difficult because battery voltage varies with temperature and load, while coulomb-counting requires sophisticated compensation to eliminate offset accumulation errors. Maxim’s ModelGauge m5 fuel gauges include a sophisticated algorithm that converts raw measurements such as battery voltage, current, and temperature into accurate state-of-charge (SOC%), absolute capacity (mAhr), time-to-empty, and time-to-full (while charging), all of which improve the user experience of the host device while enabling maximum run-time.
