BQ76930: Questions about BQ76930.

Part Number: BQ76930
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: SN65HVD1050, BQ78350

Hi

My customer has questions as below.

1. BQ76930 doesn't seem to support CAN communication. Do I have to use a separate receiver to communicate with CAN?

    How about using SN65HVD1050?

2.It used BQ78350 separately for the application notes, do I have to use it?

  What features can't be implemented if you don't use it?

Thanks

  • Hello David,

    1. BQ76930 doesn't seem to support CAN communication. Do I have to use a separate receiver to communicate with CAN?  How about using SN65HVD1050?
    The BQ76930 only supports I2C, so you would have to use an I2C capable MCU to communicate with it.

    2.It used BQ78350 separately for the application notes, do I have to use it? What features can't be implemented if you don't use it?
    No, you do not have to use it. This is a companion gauge to the BQ76930, it is not required to be used. You can use an external MCU instead.
