Production tool for 4th generation multicell battery fuel (gas) gauges




bqProduction offers a full suite of robust tools to assist with the process of configuring, calibrating, manufacturing and tracking printed circuit boards utilizing TI Battery 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 unique serial numbers, pack lot codes and finally validating limits for calibration parameters to spike out any inconsistencies in material. bqProduction 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. In addition, bqProduction supports upto 12 parallel stations from a single computer and has inbuilt capability to maintain log files for the processed printed circuits boards. Requires EV2300 and advanced bqMTester hardware.

Operating systems: Windows XP(32-bit), Windows 7(32-bit)
Requires 32-bit Java installation
