This demokit demonstrates the AS8506C’s ability to do Cell Monitoring and Balancing without a microcontroller and firmware. It allows balancing of up to 7 cells completely autonomous. The hardware will support li-based cell packs as well as EDLCs and the Number of cells, target voltage as well as over and under voltage can be configured by resistor options.

Stand-alone operation requires an AS8506C factory trim option to connect the internal comparators for monitoring and balancing to external analog references at power up as a specific default setting.

Key Features

  • Controllerless balancing
  • Simultaneous balancing
  • Tremendously reduced communication saving costs in the system
  • Highly reliable system
  • Easy implementation with no or very little software for balancing needed
