Our Director of Application Engineering, Ilyas Ayub, is a contributing writer for EDN Network. Check out his recent article, “Introduction to Lithium-ion Rechargeable Battery Design”.
This article will provide an overview on how to design a lithium-ion battery. It will look into the two major components of the battery: the cells and the electronics, and compare lithium-ion cell chemistry to other types of chemistries in the market, such as sealed lead acid (SLA), nickel-metal hydride (NiMH), and nickel-cadmium (NiCd), and how that affects the design. We'll dive into the safety aspects of lithium-ion batteries and how the battery management system (BMS) ensures that the battery is being used in a safe operating manner. This article is the first in a series of contributed articles written by Ilyas for EDN. Future articles will dive into each of these facets in great detail.
