As for new and fancy control boards, I know Adam is working on some stuff, and those crazy Australians (MCUDogs. hehe) have done all sorts of awesome things. Also, I'm going to do a surface mount version as well as a Synchronous rectification version. I finally will have a little money because we have a son! Hurray Taxes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!! So I'll be able to send the layout stuff to the PCB company. Oh the joy and rapture...

Hello Paul

Go to this web site, Mondo Technology - Pic Projects

this guy has a PIC Li-Ion battery charger project.
It may help you with some ideas that you may have.
