Diode reverse current
In one of the project I am working I am having two source of power one from a wall wart 5V and other a single Li ion Battery. I am using power ORing using PMEG3020EP schottky Diodes for automatic switch over of source.
The Li ion battery is also connected to a Single cell Battery charger a
XC6802 a Torex chip with input from the wall wart 5V.
When the battery is unconnected the chip periodically Pulses its output at an interval of 2.5ms as an attempt to charge the Li battery which is not present. In order to avoid this pulsing I have implemented N channel switch (Q4) which will disable charging when battery not present.
Please refer to the schematics attached.
Now The switch (Q4) is always on whether the battery is connected or not . This is mainly due to the reverse current of PMEG3020EP which is of the order of 0.2mA @ 5V reverse. Due to which I can observe the pulsing even when battery is disconnected. How can i solve this problem in the current setup. Is there a work around ,What if I replace R33 with a diode.
