The quick guide to layout cons

IntroductionMaxim describes a lithium-ion (Li+) battery simulator circuit in application note 4322, "Simplified lithium-ion (Li+) battery-charger testing." While Maxim does not sell evaluation (EV) boards for this circuit, the Company has received multiple requests for one. Responding to customer interest, this application note provides some basic layout guidelines and considerations for designing your own board.

Test board for the battery simulator

Making a board for the Li+ battery simulator does not need to be complicated or expensive. Most of the layout can be done with a simple two-layer breakout board, however, some consideration does need to be paid to power connections and heatsinking requirements.

As seen in Figure 1, the major power path of the simulator circuit begins at the BATT+ node, flows through the 100mΩ series input resistance and the TIP35 transistor, and returns at the BATT- node.

Assuming a 3A charge current, the input sense resistor must handle at least 900mW. To ensure a constant input series resistance during operation, use a resistor capable of handling more than 1W. A single 5W resistor or multiple 1W resistors in parallel work well.

The TIP35 transistor handles the bulk of the power through the circuit in both point-by-point mode and integrating mode. Under the worst-case conditions, power across the TIP35 transistor can be calculated as:
PTIP35 = (VBATT+ - VBATT-) × IBATT
PTIP35 = (4.2V) × 3A = 12.6W
For a safety margin, use a heatsink capable of handling 15W or more. In testing the circuit, we used a thick 0.1cm x 10cm x 18.5cm piece of copper to heatsink the TIP35. Connect the TIP35 to the board using thick traces (or wires) to reduce voltage drop and ensure accuracy.

Figures 2 and 3 show a sample layout for a 2-layer board. Figure 2 also shows the component labels for the layout in Figures 3A, 3B, and 3C. The board is set up to use multiple sense resistors (up to five) in parallel for the input series resistance; it also allows a second capacitor across the NDS0605 MOSFET. (We used two 0.047µF capacitors here). Although not shown in the figures, use vias between BATT- and the bottom layer for better ground connections. Figure 3 shows the component placement on both layers of the board.

The TIP35 transistor is connected to the circuit at the edge of the board and is connected externally to a large copper heatsink (Figure 4). Thermal paste has been used to enhance the connection between the transistor and the heatsink.
