BQ78350: Production programming with BQ-HI-PRODUCTION

Part Number: BQ78350
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: BQ76930, , EV2400, BQSTUDIO, BQPRODUCTION, BQMTESTER

We have a BMS board based on the bq76930 and bq78350-R1 using the TI development board.  It is an 8S3P pack using the configuration recommended in the TI literature.  
We have used bqStudio and an EV2400 to develop and test the board successfully against our existing SMBus compatible device.
We now need to calibrate and flash the Golden image and Calibrate the bq78350-R1.
We received from TI the link to the High Cell bpProduction software.
Reviewing the High Cell bqProduction software and hardware requirements for our product.

Our understanding is the software above will be compatible with the bq78350-R1
We need to purchase an EV2400 and an Advanced bqMTester board hardware, part number HPA495A for each parallel board we wish to program at one time.

Just want to be clear before we proceed.

  • Hello Charles,

    1. The HPA495A board is not usable by High Cell bpProduction. External equipment for calibration is required. Mode of operation: Requires 1-mV 1-mA accurate external power supplies able to supply current required for calibration.

    2. High Cell bpProduction does not support the EV2400. The download page states Requires: EV2300 or MKST-3P-ALT-EV230

    3. You may need to copy in the bq78350-R1 bqz file to the config folder to use it with bq78350-R1
