This EVM is a complete evaluation system for the bq2083/bq29311 Li-Ion smart battery chipset. The EVM includes one bq2083/bq29311 circuit module with current sense resistor and thermistor, an EV2200 PC interface board for gas gauge interface, a PC serial cable, and Windows-based PC software. The circuit monitors and predicts capacity, performs cell balancing, monitors critical parameters, protects the cells from overcharge, over discharge, short circuit, and overcurrent in 3- or 4-series cell Li-Ion or Li-Polymer battery packs. The circuit module connects directly across the cells in a battery. With the EV2200 interface board and software, the user can read the bq2083 data registers, program the chipset for different pack configurations, log cycling data for further evaluation and evaluate the overall functionality of the bq2083/bq29311 solution under different charge and discharge conditions.
Please refer to the bq2083EVM-001 User Guide for information on how to install the software, connect the evaluation setup, and use the main features of the evaluation kit.
