The bq28z610 gas gauge is a fully integrated battery manager that employs flash-based firmware and integrated hardware protection to provide a complete solution for battery-stack architectures composed of 1- to 2-series cells. The bq28z610 device interfaces with a host system via an I2C protocol. High-performance, integrated analog peripherals enable support for a sense resistor down to 1 mΩ and simultaneous current/voltage data conversion for instant power calculations. The following sections detail all of the major component blocks included as part of the bq28z610 device.
