Features and Benefits
- Demonstrates the capabilities of the DS2764 Li+ Battery Monitor, including:
- Temperature measurement
- Voltage measurement
- Current measurement
- Current accumulation
- Information storage
- Overvoltage/Undervoltage protection
- Overcurrent/short circuit protection
- Interfaces to the USB port of a PC running Windows XP® or older operating system
The DS2764 evaluation kit (EV kit) makes performance evaluation, software development, and prototyping with the DS2764 Lithium-Ion Battery Monitor easy. The evaluation board interfaces to a PC through a DS9123O USB Port Adapter and RJ-11 cable connection.
The DS2764 EV kit evaluation software gives the user complete control of all functions of the DS2764. 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 DS2764 with accurate parameter measurements, allow the DS2764 to disable charging or discharging, and protect the DS2764 from ESD damage. Kit demonstration boards will vary as they are improved upon over time.
