This demo shows the measurement capabilities of the MC33771 14-cell battery cell controller.
The MC33771 EVB monitors the voltage and current of a battery stack composed of 14 cells connected in series, as well as measuring the temperature of the Battery Cell Controller IC and the PCB.
MC33771, Kinetis KL25Z, MC33664 differential transceiver, battery pack and Windows tablet
Cell voltage measurement accuracy can be as low as +/-2mV : look at bottom right chart, where the auto-scaled window is always smaller than 4mV Configurable between 7 to 14 cells
