SMBus Smart Battery Test Suite V2, is a tool for developing and testing Smart Battery Systems (SBS). This suite of 32-bit Windows based programs work with our iPort (#MIIC-201) or iPort DLL/USB (#MIIC-201D/U) I2C Host Adapter to emulate and test messages generated by various SMBus Smart Battery devices. Members of this test suite include the SMBus Smart Battery Emulator, and SMBus Smart Battery Tester.
The SMBus Smart Battery Emulator (SBEmmy) is designed to emulate the messaging system of an SMBus Smart Battery V1.0, providing a tool for SBS Host or Device developers. It provides direct on-screen access to the over 30 parameters within an emulated smart battery. When connected to a Smart Battery System, SBEmmy responds to messages from other SBS devices, and can generate Host and Charger Warning and Alarm messages in accordance with Smart Battery System specifications.
In addition to being able to change emulated battery parameters in real-time at the click of a mouse button and save these parameters to reloadable frame file, SBEmmy includes a Sequencer Engine that can automatically step the emulator through a series of parameter frames to emulate repeatable changing battery conditions over time.
The SMBus Smart Battery Tester (SBTest) connects directly to an SMBus Smart Battery V1.0 via an iPort Host Adapter, and provides direct on-screen access to the battery's internal parameters.
SBTest can Read or Write smart battery parameters. Its primary use is to confirm or exercise a smart battery's operation over a period of time. Operations include selection of parameters to access, single or repeated access, display of parameters in engineering units, and logging of selected battery parameters to a comma-delimited file for importation into a spreadsheet program.
