Downloads

Overview

Hi-cell bqProduction offers a full suite of robust tools to assist with the process of configuring, calibrating, manufacturing and tracking printed circuit boards utilizing TI's battery management products. This includes features that allow writing a golden image followed by different types of calibration to provide desired levels of accuracy, writing date of manufacture, writing unique serial numbers and finally validating limits for calibration parameters to spike out any inconsistencies in material. Hi-cell bqProduction offers three levels of access to allow strict control over the manufacturing process with the assembly line operator only having access to the "Start" button. Hi-cell bqProduction supports a single station from a single computer and has inbuilt capability to maintain log files for the processed printed circuit boards.

Requires: EV2300 or MKST-3P-ALT-EV2300

Mode of operation: Requires 1-mV 1-mA accurate external power supplies able to supply current required for calibration.

Features
  • Support for EV2300
  • Uses industry standard Motorola SREC format golden image programmer
  • Calibration and test automation
  • Unique serial number assignment/programming
  • Supports BQ34z100, BQ34110 and BQ78350 family of products
