Single-Battery Charger and Fuel Gauge Reference Design for Arduino Platforms

The MAXREFDES96# from Maxim Integrated Products is an Arduino Uno R3-compatible board that provides battery charge, boost, and data-logging capabilities. The board can be operated tethered to a power supply or computer to charge a battery and operate untethered to use the battery to...

Fuel-gauge ICs help prevent battery clones

Maxim’s family of ModelGauge m5 standalone fuel gauges provides SHA-256 authentication with a 160-bit secret key to make it harder to clone battery packs. The ICs also implement the ModelGauge m5 algorithm, which converts raw measurements of battery voltage, current, and temperature...

Battery-pack fuel gauge with SHA-256 authentication prevents pack cloning

Implementing pack-side battery gauges in portable devices is easier and more secure, Maxim asserts, with its ModelGauge m5 portfolio of MAX17201/MAX17205 and MAX17211/MAX17215. Fuel gauging can be difficult because battery voltage varies with temperature and load, while...
