BQ40Z50-R4-DEVICE-FW: Generating binary for mass production by bqstudio

Part Number: BQ40Z50-R4-DEVICE-FW
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: BQ40Z50, BQSTUDIO

I'd like to generate binary of BQ40Z50 for mass production.

I can not find out Hex Dump button in "Data Meory" tab. My bqstudio version is 1.3.101 and the "Data Memory" screen is the same as the image posted here. ( https://e2e.ti.com/support/power-management-group/power-management/f/power-management-forum/474272/location-of-hex-dump-button-on-bqstudio-for-bq40z50r1 )

How can I use HexDump function ?

And can I use "Read Srec/FS from device" function in "Firemware" tab as the alternative way ?

  • Hi fuji,

    To see the Hex Dump button, click on the Window menu in the top left, then click on Preferences. Then click on the radio button that says Show Advanced Views near the center of the window that pops up. After applying those settings, you should now see the button.

  • Thank you for your support. I could find HexDump button and download a file.

    I'd like to make sure about "Read Srec/FS from device" function in "Firemware" tab.

    Does the file generated by "Read Srec/FS from device" include Parameter settings (=DataMemory) and Chemistry ? My understanding is that once the golden srec file is programmed, parameters and chemistry do not have to be set individually.

  • Hi fuji,

    Yes, the .srec file contains both parameter settings and chemistry, and neither needs to be set individually after programming.
