What are Battery ID and Authentication ICs?
As a battery maker or end-equipment maker, you take care to engineer battery packs for your end user. Problems can arise when counterfeiters decide to make a replacement for the battery. The counterfeit battery will likely have reduced performance and could even be dangerous. The solution is to ensure your system only accepts authorized batteries using a secure authentication scheme. Make sure your next system and battery design includes an integrated circuit which can perform this function.
