The widely used Smart Battery standard, which has been released by the SBS Forum, defines several classes of devices typically available in a battery powered system:

  • Data (battery)
  • Charger
  • Selector
  • Manager

Each of these devices is standardized as an SMBus slave.

Here is our SMBus application note. And another one for Smart Battery.

Our product telos Tracii XL 2.0 offers a sophisticated solution for analysing Smart Battery Systems (SBS).

There are IRD files available, which make debugging of a Smart Battery setup a lot easier.

The traced data of Smart Battery devices are automatically converted into human readable information.
