Yesterday I received a nice little email from The Texas Instruments E2E Community team. I was chosen as their Member of the Month of their analog electronics forum, specifically the battery fuel gauge section (of course!).
TI is sending me a Fuel Tank BoosterPack for their Launchpad microcontroller development platforms. It includes a 1200 mAh lithium-polymer battery, a bq27510 fuel gauge, and a bq24210 lithium-ion charger, all on one board. They’ve also offered me the opportunity to write a post on their power management blog, Fully Charged, regarding this little board. When I receive it I’ll definitely be taking a closer look at it.
Thanks, Texas Instruments!
