Texas Instruments BQ77PL900EVM-001
BQ77PL900EVM-001 evaluation module is a complete evaluation system for the bq77PL900, a five- to ten-cell Li-ion battery protection and AFE integrated circuit. The EVM includes one bq77PL900 circuit module. The circuit module includes one bq77PL900 integrated circuit (IC), sense resistor, power FETs and all other onboard components necessary to protect the cells from overcharge, over discharge, short circuit, and over current discharge in 5 to 10 series cell Li-ion or Li-polymer battery packs. The circuit module connects directly across the cells in a battery. With the EV2400 interface board and software, the user can read the bq77PL900 data registers, program the IC protection limits, and evaluate the overall functionality of the bq77PL900 solution under different operational conditions. An EV2400 board is required to interface this EVM with the PC and can be purchased separately.
