ActiveCharge™ Family of ICs with Qualcomm®
Quick Charge™ 2.0 Certification for Car Charger (CLA) and Wall Adapter Applications


ActiveCharge Diagram Active-Semi® is proud to offer ActiveCharge™ IC solutions with Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 2.0 Certification for fast mobile charging applications. With battery life falling short of the ever-increasing demands of today's smartphones, being able to quickly charge batteries is an essential alternative to increasing battery size. With the advent of Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 2.0, available in all new Snapdragon 800 processors, it is possible to charge batteries in compatible mobile devices up to 75% faster than the conventional 5V/1A chargers. Active-Semi® ICs that support ActiveCharge™ can offer easy-to-use, highest performance and smallest BOM solutions to implement fast charging solutions such as:

  • Car charger
  • Car cigarette lighter adapter (CLA) chargers
  • Wall adapter chargers
  • Rechargeable portable devices
  • Battery chargers for smartphones, tablets, and netbooks
  • Digital cameras and bluetooth accessories
  • USB power output ports

Key Features & Benefits

  • Certified for Qualcomm® Quick Charge 2.0™ high voltage dedicated charging port (HVDCP) Class A
  • Complete QC 2.0 Solutions with a single IC (ACT4526) with integrated QC2.0 controller and power management
