bqProduction Hi-cell software offers a full suite of robust tools to assist with the process of configuring, calibrating, manufacturing and tracking printed circuit boards utilizing TI 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. bqProduction Hi-cell software offers three (3) levels of access to allow strict control over the manufacturing process with the assembly line operator only having access to the "Start" button. bqProduction Hi-cell software supports a single station from a single computer and has inbuilt capability to maintain log files for the processed printed circuit boards.
Mode of operation dependent: Requires 1mV, 1mA accurate external power supplies able to supply current required for calibration.
MKST-3P-ALT-EV2300 is used as a substitute for EV2300. Separate installers may be provided for each family of products and build numbers may vary by device family.
Limitations: Recommended display resolution is 1920x1080 with maximum 125% scaling. The GUI may not show password fields and/or buttons may be moved out of the visible area when using other display settings.
BQ78350 family of gauges firmware is a firmware-only release that can be flashed onto any existing BQ78350 hardware (such as the BQ78350, BQ78350-R1, BQ78350-R2, … devices). The firmware incorporates the CEDV Li-ion and LiFePO4 battery management controller to create a pack-based solution that provides a rich array of features for gas gauging, protection, authentication, and monitoring using the companion BQ769x0 family of analog front end (AFE) protection devices for upto 15-series cell Li-ion and Li-polymer battery packs.
The BQ78350-R1A device offers optional LED or LCD display configurations for capacity reporting. It also makes data available over its SMBus 1.1 interface. Battery history and diagnostic data is also kept within the device in non-volatile memory and is available over the same interface.
The BQ78350-DEVICE-FW firmware is usable on any previous version of the BQ78350 hardware. Refer the release notes for more information.
