## Converting ADC value to milivolts in MM9Z1J638

Hello All,

I am studying on MM9Z1J638 intelligent battery sensor. I see that ADC results of voltage difference within each cell is kept in mV as well among with adc values (called raw values in demo code). I did not quite get how ADC result (raw values) are converted into miliVolts.

Given:

const u8 Vres    [V_MAX_CHANNELS] = {VS_RES_0mV25, VS_RES_0mV25, VS_RES_0mV5,   VS_RES_1mV};

Following shows this conversion:

Vsense[u8VChIdx].u16Raw = u16VsenseValue;

Vsense[u8VChIdx].u16mV = u16VsenseValue >> Vsense[u8VChIdx].u8Res;

Looking forward to see your comments.

Best

The resolution of the VSENSE channels is

• VSENSE3  1.00mV/LSB
• VSENSE2  0.50mV/LSB
• VSENSE1  0.25mV/LSB
• VSENSE0  0.25mV/LSB

To scale the result a divide by 1 / 2 / 4 / 4 can be used (or a shift >> 0 / 1 / 2 / 2 as in the code above).

Hello again,

A question occured in my mind. I know that we have only one channel for voltage measurement. Why do we have different resolutions for each Vsense(x)?

Thanks in advance

Kadir,

the MM9Z1_638 is optimized to address 12V lead acid battery BMS systems but not limited to that. For the 12V system a single measurment channel would be enought (typically VSENSE2 - can measure 0..28V). For other applications, e.g. 24V systems two VSENSEx (VSENSE2 and VSENSE3) could be used. For e.g. 4 cell LiIon you would want 4 VSENSEx inputs.

The 4 VSENSEx inputs (ranges and resolutions) were selected as "trade-off" to adress different applications.

Ok, I see now. For my application I utilized 4 channels of Vsense and the resoulutions are different. I also checked the manual. Thank you for your fast response.
