BQ25896EVM-664: Use EVM without EV2300 or EV2400

Part Number: BQ25896EVM-664

Hello,

I just want to know if we can evaluate the chip using an adruino (or the likes) instead of using EV2300 or EV2400?

I believe it can be done by simply using a host controller over an I2C interface and other GPIOs. 

I just want to make sure I am not missing anything here. 

Wonder if we can still use the BQStudio?


Thanks,

Shiv

    Hi Shiv,

    BQStudio requires an EV2300/EV2400.  You can alternatively use a controller to read/write the charger's I2C register over the I2C bus.
