O2Micro Granted U.S. Patent for Protection Circuit Architecture

O2Micro® International Limited (Nasdaq:OIIM), a global leader in the design, development and marketing of high-performance integrated circuits and solutions, today announced that it was issued 24 claims under United States patent number 8,248,259 for its Protection Circuit with Timer architecture.
This patented architecture, within a Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery for example, enables the protection function to completely and safely disconnect a charging source from any undesired conditions. For example, if a battery over-voltage condition occurs, a series of signals are triggered that enable the protection function.
Bill Densham, strategic marketing director, O2Micro, said "This patent ensures that protection functions are fully executed after encountering a fault condition, protecting end users from potentially dangerous conditions caused by partially implemented protection."
