The ADuC7036 is a complete system solution for battery monitoring in 12 V automotive applications. These devices integrate all of the required features to precisely and intelligently monitor, process, and diagnose 12 V battery parameters including battery current, voltage, and temperature over a wide range of operating conditions.
Minimizing external system components, the device is powered directly from the 12 V battery. An on-chip, low dropout regulator generates the supply voltage for three integrated, 16-bit, Σ-Δ ADCs. The ADCs precisely measure battery current, voltage, and temperature to characterize the state of health and charge of the car battery.
TA Flash/EE memory-based ARM7™ microcontroller (MCU) is also integrated on-chip. It is used to both preprocess the acquired battery variables and to manage communications from the ADuC7036 to the main electronic control unit (ECU) via a local interconnect network (LIN) interface that is integrated onchip.
Both the MCU and the ADC subsystem can be individually configured to operate in normal or flexible power saving modes of operation.
