The ISL94212EVKIT1Z is an evaluation kit that facilitates the use of the ISL94212 Li-ion battery manager IC. The ISL94212 monitors cell voltage and temperature. It converts the cell voltages and temperatures to 14-bit digital values, provides cell balance control, and it provides significant fault detection. The ISL94212 can operate in a single device configuration, or multiple kits can be cascaded using a built-in daisy chain connection. The daisy chain hardware provides robust, redundant board-to-board communications.
