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.


  • Supports both stand alone and daisy chained configurations
  • Daisy chaining with both connector only or wire jumper options
  • GUI provided export option for generation of detailed register and/or SPI communications log files
  • USB dongle runs HID firmware for driver-less enumeration and communications with Windows platforms
  • GUI add-in chart generation tool supports real-time graphing, zoom and export of captured data
  • Software provides checksum requirements associated with daisy chain communications
  • Kit includes "Battery Emulation" board(s) for cell voltage generation
