A fully integrated cost-effective and lowpower single chip Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) battery protection IC (BPIC) for portable devices is presented. The control unit of the battery protection system and the MOSFET switches are integrated in a single package to protect the battery from over-charge, over-discharge, and over-current. The proposed BPIC enters into low-power standby mode when the battery becomes over-discharged. A new auto release function (ARF) is adopted to release the BPIC from standby mode and safely return it to normal operation mode. A new delay shorten mode (DSM) is also proposed to reduce the test time without increasing pin counts. The BPIC implemented in a 0.18-μm CMOS process occupies an area of 750 μm×610 μm. With DSM enabled, the measured test time is dramatically reduced from 56.82 s to 0.15 s. The BPIC chip consumes 3 μA under normal operating conditions and 0.45 μA under standby mode. © 2015 Institute of Electronics Engineers of Korea. All rights reserved.
