Linear Technology Releases New NiMH Charger-Receiver for Hearing Aid Applications
The LTC4123 Combines a Wireless Receiver with Linear Charger for NiMH Batteries
Linear Technology has released the LTC4123 to further expand its
offerings in wireless battery charging. The LTC4123 combines a 30mW wireless receiver with a
constant-current/constant-voltage linear charger for NiMH batteries, such as Varta's power
one ACCU plus series. An external resonant LC tank connected to the LTC4123 enables the IC to
receive power wirelessly from an alternating magnetic field generated by a transmit coil.
Integrated power management circuitry converts the coupled AC current into the
DC current required to charge the battery. Wireless charging with the LTC4123 allows for a completely sealed
product and eliminates the need to constantly replace primary batteries. Zn-Air (Zinc-Air) detection allows
applications to work interchangeably with both rechargeable NiMH batteries and primary Zn-Air
batteries with the same application circuit. Both battery types can directly power a hearing aid ASIC
without the need for additional voltage conversion. By contrast, a 3.7V Li-ion
battery requires a stepdown regulator in addition to the LTC4123's functionality to power the ASIC.
