Part Number: BQ51050B
We are using Texas Instruments Qi charging receivers to develop wearables, and other sensors, with Qi charging capabilities, and we would like to clarify some points about the FOD calibration of the RX side.
We have searched for information on how to perform this calibration and we found a couple of videos from Dick Stacey in the TI Training website where this issue is explained (training.ti.com/wireless-power-101-fod-lab-session). Our question is about the tools used to perform the calibration. In the video it is referred the use of the "AVID Technologies Qi FOD transmitter", but this tool is too expensive for our current budget. What I would like to ask is if we can use the Texas Instruments bq500412EVM-584 (which we already have at home) along with the "bqTESLA TX Tuning Tool Software for FOD set up" referred on the evaluation module data sheet.
If yes, were can we find the bqTESLA TX Tuning Tool Software for FOD set up, and documentation on how to use it?If not, why cannot we use the bq500412EVM-584? Are there any alternatives to the AVID Technologies Qi FOD transmitter?As a last remark, I will just note that the sensors are not going to be Qi certified.
