Overview

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.
