Xicor Inc., a supplier of analog and mixed-signal ICs, announced that Battery Technology Inc. has selected its battery management IC, X3100, for its notebook replacement battery packs. The X3100 is utilized in the following Battery Technology battery packs: IBM A, IBM I, IBM T, IBM R, Dell Cpi, Dell 7000, Dell 8000, Compaq 300/500, Compaq EVO 610, and Compaq 7000.

The X3100 is part of Xicor's new family of battery management solutions that protect and monitor battery packs consisting of four Li-ion battery cells in series. The X3101 is designed for three Li-ion cells in series. Both devices provide internal overcharge, over-discharge, over-current protection circuitry, internal EEPROM memory, an internal voltage regulator and internal drive circuitry for external FET devices that control cell charge, discharge, and cell voltage balancing.

"Xicor's X3100 battery solution allows Battery Technology to reduce the number of components in the battery module while both increasing the performance and lowering the system cost," stated Chris Chu of Battery Technology.
