The Analog Devices Inc. LTC6812-1 Demo Board DC3036A includes a pre-mounted LTC6812-1 in a 64-lead eLQFP package. Multiple boards can be linked through isoSPI to monitor a long series of cells in a stack. The DC3036A Demo Board also features reversible isoSPI enabling a redundant communication path. The PCB, components, and DuraClik connectors are optimized for Low EMI susceptibility and emissions.
The DC3036A can communicate to a PC by connecting the DC2026 Linduino® One Board with the DC2792B Dual isoSPI Master Board. The Linduino® One Board is an Arduino-compatible platform that provides example code demonstrating how to control the LTC6812-1 15-Cell Battery Stack Monitor. The DC2026 offers an isolated USB connection to the PC, built-in SPI MISO line pull-up to properly interface with the battery-stack monitor serial data output, and an easy ribbon cable connection for SPI communication through the DC2792B 14-pin QuikEval™ J1 connector. The DC2792B Companion board provides two SPI-isoSPI channels for reversible operation.
