The power supply is based on the ASIC circuit CCONT. The chip consists of regulators and control circuits providing functions like power up, reset and watchdog. External buffering is required to provide more current on some blocks.
The MCU and the CCONT circuits control charging together, detection being carried out by the CCONT and higher level intelligent control by the MCU. The MCU measures battery voltage by means of the COBBA via DSP. Charger voltage and the temperature and size of the battery are followed via the MCU internal ADC.
Detailed power distribution diagrams are given in Baseband blocks and RF blocks documents.
