Other Parts Discussed in Thread: BQ34110
So my project consists of using an EEPROM to program a gas gauge BQ2040 chip that is connected to a battery supply. From this setup, I would like to read the battery specific information (time to full charge, time until discharge, etc) from the EEPROM register functions, and display it on an LCD display. I have heard that there are certain microcontrollers that can be used in conjunction with the BQ2040 and the EEPROM to read data onto an LCD display via SMBus. However, my issue is identifying a microcontroller that has this capability. I also inexperienced in terms of programming the chip. It would be helpful to receive some guidance, once a microcontroller is identified, on how to go about writing code to tell the microcontroller to read the data off of the EEPROM and display it onto the LCD. And moreover, how to modify the code to read specific register functions (i.e. capacity remaining, battery charge percentage, etc) onto the LCD. Does anyone have experience in this or done something similar?
