CW2017 Gas-Gauge ASIC

The CW2017 is an ultra-compact, low-cost, system-side/pack-side, sensing resistor free, fuel gauging system IC for Lithium-ion(Li+) based batteries in handheld and portable devices. The device requires very little user configurations and MCU firmware development efforts.

The CW2017 tracks Li+ battery’s operation condition and performs state-of-art algorithm to calculate the relative State-of-Charge (SOC) of very different battery chemistry systems (LiCoOx, polymer Li-ion, LiMnOx etc.).

The CW2017 includes a 14-bit Sigma-Delta ADC, a precision voltage reference and build-in NTC bias circuit. The device allows end users to eliminate the expensive sensing resistor which usually occupies very large PCB area. The alarm signal will be sent out if the battery SOC level or the temperature measured reaches the pre-programmed threshold.

The CW2017 integrates the ID resistor sensing feature. It can also be used as an alternative sensing port.

The CW2017 uses a 2-wire I2C compatible serial interface that operates in standard mode(100kHz) or fast mode(400kHz).
