BQ40Z80EVM-020: bms studio issues

Part Number: BQ40Z80EVM-020
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: BQSTUDIO, , BQ40Z80


as part of a project for my company, I ordered a BQ40Z80EVM-020. I received it and installed the BQSTUDIO (battery management studio) application.

The problems start when I try to identify the type of component used:

I select the family of BQ40Z80 and unfortunately none of the "bq40z80" families are accepted, which prevents me from using the bms.

I've tried downloading other tools proposed by TI (see photo) but nothing works. Could you please tell me the necessary steps so that I can use the card.

thank you in advance.

  • Hi Amaury,

    The This detected device is not compatible with this application! error occurs when the device is not properly communicating with the computer. If the device is correctly set up, when bqStudio is opened, it will recognize which device you are using without prompting you to pick one.
