I'm researching a current limit switch but I am a bit confused. I need an IC that works as a current switch. I have a battery with charging and protection at one end, and buck boost on the another. Current must not go above 5A. Is it possible, with the TPS2559, to control just that. Constant voltage up until 5 amps are exceded? and after that constant current?
My goal is to protect the BQ24075T I have for charging the battery.
The battery max discharge current is 5.2A. Combined fully chargeg battery and USB can deliver way over 5 A.
