BQ20Z80A-V110: BQ20Z80A-V110 - I2C command panel

Part Number: BQ20Z80A-V110
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: BQSTUDIO, , BQ34Z100-G1, BQ34110, BQ35100, BQ29312A, BQ20Z80, BQEVSW

To whom it may concern-

I am trying to use bqStudio I2C Master Control Panel to read and write parameters from the bq20z80A-V110.  Specifically, I am trying to access the DataFlash space portion of the IC with the TI software.  My goal is to gain access through the I2C Master Control Panel and then integrate the call structure into a Labview program I am developing with the Total Phase Aardvark I2c/SPI dongle.

In that vein, I haven't been able to find any literature on how to use the bqStudoio I2C Master Control Panel software with the bq20z80A-V110.  The only document I was able to find was slua790, which is entitled "Using I2C Communications with the bq34110, bq35100 and bq34z100-G1 Series of GAs Gauges".  In this document there is a brief overview of the I2C commands and specific examples of how to use the I2C Master Control Panel software with these integrated circuits.  There is a lot of good information in the document. 

I wanted to know if there was a way of running one of the examples in this document by replacing the bq34xxx and bq35xxx integrated circuts with the bq20z80A-V110.  I am attaching the following picture that is a screenshot of the Data Flash Access example found in the slua790 document:



Specific to my chip bq20z80A-V110, I want to read the COV Threshold which is Subclass 0 and Offset 0 in the Data Flash space.  I was able to check the value through the bq gas gauge software and it should be 4350 mV. The document where this information can be found is sluu288, which is entitled "bq20z80A-V110 +bq29312A Chipset Technical Reference Manual". I am attaching a cutout from the document detailing the SBS commands for the DataFlashClass and the DataFlashSubclasses I will have to use in order to replicate the example above for this IC.



So, any help you can give me in regards to taking the example from the source document for the bq34xxx IC and replacing it with the bq20z80A-V110 and accessing the Data Flash space by way of the I2C Master Control panel would be greatly appreciated.

If there are any further inquiries, please don't hesitate to ask me. 

Thanks in advance
