Features and Benefits
Demonstrates the capabilities of the DS2761 Li+ battery monitor, including:
- Temperature measurement
- Voltage measurement
- Current measurement
- Current accumulation
- Information storage
- Overvoltage/undervoltage protection
- Overcurrent/short circuit protection,
Interfaces to the serial port of a PC Running Windows 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT
The DS2761K evaluation kit makes performance evaluation, software development, and prototyping with the DS2761 Li+ battery monitor easy. The evaluation board interfaces to an IBM®-compatible PC through a DS9123 serial port adapter and RJ-11 cable connection. The provided CD-ROM contains all related data sheets along with the evaluation software, which can be run under Windows® 95, Windows 98, or Windows NT.
The DS2761K evaluation software gives the user complete control of all functions of the DS2761. Separate control tabs allow the user access to all EEPROM and RAM memory locations, all control registers, and real-time updates of all monitored parameters. The software also incorporates a data logging feature to monitor a cell over time and fuel gauging algorithms to improve remaining capacity calculations based on specific cell characteristics.
The evaluation board circuit is designed to provide the DS2761 with accurate parameter measurements, allow the DS2761 to disable charging or discharging, and protect the DS2761 from ESD damage. Kit demonstration boards will vary as they are improved upon over time. For information on the demonstration board circuits refer to the DOCS browser page when auto running from the DS2761K CD-ROM or inside the documentation directory on the DS2761K CD-ROM.
