AS8506-DK-ST ActiveBoard
Demo Kit ActiveBoard for AS8506

The AS8506 supports Cell Monitoring and Cell Balancing in a simultaneous and autonomous way. Additionally the IC can do either passive balancing or active balancing through a small external fly back converter.

This demo kit is configured for Active Balancing. This kit demonstrates the AS8506’s ability to operate without a microcontroller and firmware. It allows balancing of up to 7 cells completely autonomous. The hardware will support li-based cell packs as well as EDLCs. The Number of cells, target voltage as well as over and under voltage can be configured by resistor options.
