Renesas' ISL94216 solves the integration requirements for 36V+ batteries by bringing all the analog protection, monitoring, reporting, and balancing circuits into a single device. Safe, rapid battery development is enabled from this highly integrated battery front end IC, which eliminates many BOM selections and PCB size through integration, and many PCB verification and test challenges are now pre-addressed at the IC level.
