I am making a 1S2P Li-ion battery pack. One of the requirement is I need to protect over-charge and over-discharge by detecting the voltage of each cell. The protection circuit/IC should interrupt the battery when any one of the cells is over or under voltage.
I find most of the protection IC is to protect the cells connected in series, such as LV51131T. When connecting the cells in parallel, the way I can think of is to add multiple protection IC, such as DW01-P. Each protection IC connects to a single cell and adding diode on each branch. Therefore there will be two identical protection IC on the board.
However, by searching from the web, it seems nobody is using this method. I would like to ask what is the normal or correct practice for this purpose?
Thank you very much
