Battery Protection IC for 2-Serial to 4-Serial-cell Pack (Secondary Protection) S-8224A/B Series

The S-8224A/B Series is used for secondary protection of lithium-ion rechargeable batteries, and incorporates high-accuracy voltage detection circuits and delay circuits.
Short-circuits between cells accommodate series connection of two cells to four cells.
The S-8224B Series limits its CO pin output voltage to 11.5 V max., so an FET with the gate withstand voltage of 12 V can be used.


High-accuracy voltage detection circuit for each cell
Overcharge detection voltage n (n = 1 to 4)
