While the cell voltages are digitized sequentially using a single muxed ADC during normal operation, the current is digitized continuously by the dedicated coulomb counter ADC. The current is measured synchronously with each cell voltage measurement, and can be used for individual cell impedance analysis. The ongoing periodic current measurements can be read out through the digital communication interface, while the measurements taken that were synchronized with particular cell voltage measurements are stored paired with the associated cell voltage measurement for separate readout. These values can be read using a block subcommand, which ensures the synchronously aligned voltage and current data are read out together.
