In recent years, systems using lithium battery technology have come under significant scrutiny. The desire for improved lithium battery reliability has increased in recent years due to documented incidents lithium battery technology. Various organizations, including IEEE, have been involved with the development of up to date standards addressing system integration considerations in order to help minimize potential incidents of all types of lithium cell design including lithium ion as well as lithium ion polymer.

The IEEE approved the publication of a revised version of IEEE Std 1625 in September 2008. The newly released standard, known as IEEE Std 1625-2008, is titled “IEEE Standard for Rechargeable Batteries for Multi-Cell Mobile Computing Devices” and addresses various aspects including the design and evaluation of mobile computing systems and subsystems. Communication to the end user as well as end user behavior and actions are also discussed.

Similar to other lithium battery standards, such as IEEE 1725:2011, the overall System Integration Considerations in IEEE 1625 include:

• Pack Considerations

• Host Device Considerations

• Adapters

• Total System Reliability Considerations

• Quality System Requirements

Various design analysis tools such as Failure Mode and Effect Analysis (FMEA) as well as destructive testing are recommended to improve the proper design, manufacturing and supply chain of all subsystems and the overall host which is considered to be a multi-cell mobile computing device.

ARTIN Engineering has been involved with the development of various standards and protocols to help improve the reliability of devices employing cells, battery packs and chargers. Please contact us regarding your IEEE 1625 needs. Our problem solving capabilities, testing, evaluation and turnaround time have high regards in the industry.
