Wide-Vin Battery Charger Using SMBus Communication Interface Between MSP430 MCUs and bq Fuel Gauges

Technical Paper / Application Report

More InfoLess Info
This application report describes a smart-battery charger reference design with a wide-input-voltage range. The reference design implements the System Management Bus (SMBus) protocol for communication between the MSP430 microcontroller and a SMBus-compatible battery fuel gauge. The MSP430 device interrogates the fuel gauge for voltage, current, and other parameters via SMBus. It then adjusts the pulse width modulation (PWM) duty-cycle output signals being fed to the DC/DC converter to deliver the power requested by the battery.

Can MSP430 support multiple cells to manage? For example: EV 720V 50Ah (18650 Li-Ion battery package 200S 20P) Please give some advice. How to do??
