Integrated Precision Battery Sensor for Automotive System
Minimizing external system components, the device is powered directly from the 12 V battery. An on-chip, low dropout (LDO) regulator generates the supply voltage for the three integrated 16-bit ADCs. The ADCs precisely measure battery current, voltage, and temperature, which can be used to characterize the state of health and charge of a car battery.
A Flash/EE memory-based ARM7™ microcontroller (MCU) is also integrated on-chip and is used both to preprocess the acquired battery variables and to manage communications from the ADuC7032-8L to the main electronic control unit (ECU) via a local interconnect network (LIN) interface, which is integrated on-chip.
Both the MCU and the ADC subsystem can be individually configured to operate in normal or flexible power saving modes of operation.
In its normal operating mode, the MCU is clocked indirectly from an on-chip oscillator via the phase-locked loop (PLL) at a maximum clock rate of 20.48 MHz. In its power-saving operating modes, the MCU can be totally powered down, waking up only in response to an ADC conversion result ready, digital comparators, the wake-up timer, a power-on reset (POR), or an external serial communication event.
The ADC can be configured to operate in a normal (full-power) mode of operation, interrupting the MCU after various sample conversion events. The current channel features two low power modes: low power and low power plus, generating conversion results to a lower performance specification.
On-chip factory firmware supports in-circuit Flash/EE memory reprogramming via the LIN or JTAG serial interface ports, and nonintrusive emulation is also supported via the JTAG interface. These features are incorporated into a low cost QuickStart™ Plus development system supporting the ADuC7032-8L.
The ADuC7032-8L operates directly from the 12 V battery supply and is fully specified over a temperature range of −40°C to +105°C. The ADuC7032-8L is functional, with degraded performance, at temperatures from 105°C to 125°C.
At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
ADI has always placed the highest emphasis on delivering products that meet the maximum levels of quality and reliability. We achieve this by incorporating quality and reliability checks in every scope of product and process design, and in the manufacturing process as well. "Zero defects" for shipped products is always our goal.
