Figure 1: Some battery chemistries compared

This article discusses the issue and describes cost-effective integrated solutions that can also add extra user benefits, including state-of-charge and state-of-health monitoring. Going back in history, perhaps hundreds of chemistries have been proposed for batteries. These have ranged from the original copper,
Slightly more than forty years ago, the silicon power MOSFET was a disruptive technology that displaced the bipolar transistor as the power conversion device of choice for the semiconductor industry – and a $12B market emerged.
