Features and Benefits

  • Pin accessible, standalone AD8452
  • Simplified operation: connect a power supply and scope and start looking at waveforms
  • On-board precision 5 V reference included for accurate gain measurements
  • Factory tested
  • Four optional control loops available but not necessary for operation; may be bypassed as desired
  • Safe: only low power circuitry is present; no accidental power discharges

Product Details

The AD8452-EVALZ is a platform for the AD8452, designed for investigation of the AD8452 analog and pulse-width modulation (PWM) features and performance without the added complications of a driver and/or switch mode power supply (SMPS) design. For convenience, a precision 5 V reference IC and four trim pots are built in to the evaluation board, for driving the battery current and voltage ISET and VSET inputs. All device pins are accessible with test loops or probe landings.

At the same time, the AD8452-EVALZ has the flexibility to interface and drive a typical half bridge inductor input SMPS with output levels in the 1 A to 15 A range. SMPS and associated components are specified and sourced by the user.

The AD8452 is intended for use as the core controller for commercial battery test and formation systems. Its advanced miniaturization and extraordinarily high level of analog precision meet the challenge of mass production of high energy density storage lithium ion packs for transportation and energy storage in homes.

When working with the evaluation board, consult the AD8452 data sheet for a detailed device Theory of Operation and for additional information in conjunction with user guide UG-1180.
