# IC has pull-down resistors on SMBus lines?

The datasheet of TI bq40z50-R2 (Li-Ion Battery Pack Manager) tells that "The SMBus clock and data lines have internal pulldown".

Pin equivalent Diagram is in image below:

Aren't usually the SMBus Data and Clock lines to be connected to pull-up resistors?

I'd like to connect this IC and a Battery Charger IC to same SMBus, but the latter requires pull-up resistors for the SMBus lines.

Would this work anyway?

Thanks
