The Texas Instruments bq24100EVM is the evaluation module (EVM) for the bq24100 Li-Ion charge management IC. The bq24100 is a highly integrated battery charge IC utilizing synchronous switch mode power conversion for efficient and comprehensive charge control of a single cell Li-Ion battery. The EVM is a complete bq24100 based circuit and provides a convenient method to evaluate the operation and performance of the IC.
The EVM is set up at the factory to charge at 1.33A and a 4.2V voltage limit.
The EVM development tool includes a tested evaluation module; a user guide (SLUU200) that contains the schematic, bill of materials, component placement, layout and the setup of the EVM; and the bq24100 data sheet.
The only necessities to use the EVM are a power source (16V max) and the battery to be charged.
