BQ79616EVM-021: Cell Monitoring of BQ79616EVM-021 using USB2ANY

Part Number: BQ79616EVM-021
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: USB2ANY

I have attached  BQ79616EVM-021 to USB2ANY. And 18V supply is connected between VSTACK & GND Pins.

Now BQAutoEval GUI shows hardware connected.

On Cell Monitoring Tab when I click the WAKE UP Button, the green LED on the  BQ79616EVM-021 board glows. 

But Start Polling Button is not enabled in GUI. So clicking on that button has no effect.

Please let me know why  "Start Polling" button is not enabled ?? How to enable it?? so that I can monitor the cell voltages.

  • Hi Yogesh,

    When you first open the GUI, there is a pop-up menu that asks you to select the bridge device and the stack device. If you are only using one EVM the stack device does not matter. Can you verify that you've selected "BQ7961x" for the bridge device? If so, after clicking "Wake Up" on the Cell Monitoring tab, you also need to click "Auto Address" before clicking "Start Polling." 

    Please let me know if this solves your issue.
