Module block diagram

Software monitoring of Li-Ion battery charging status

PS4IoT_V1 has a number of signal lines that allow the main controller to monitor the charging process status, temperature, and battery voltage programmatically. For example, if a mismatch is detected, such as exceeding the charging time or battery temperature, the controller can programmatically stop or restore the charging process. In addition, these mechanisms in combination with the sleep mode are reasonable to use in the charge/discharge control software algorithm to extend battery life.

Note. What if we make two interfaces at once on the GGreg20 module: pulse output and I2C? This would be very convenient, but the clients’ costs increase unnecessarily in that case. The companion controller occupies a certain area on the module board. The I2C bus occupies twice as many controller ports as the pulse output. All that adds significantly to the unit price. On the other hand, the pulse counting output interface takes up only one controller GPIO with an interrupt handler and is much easier to code. The current version of the GGreg20 module can work without a controller at all: a user can use a watch to monitor the duration of the radiation measurement and count led blinks manually. The PS4IoT_V1 version of the module does not support connecting an NTC battery thermistor directly to the charging controller. Therefore, temperature monitoring can be implemented by connecting an additional temperature sensor to the main controller using I2C bus or other interfaces such as 1-Wire, SPI, NTC-thermistor, etc. Thus, through the Charge Enable signal (see CEset.2) the controller can prohibit or allow charging depending on the battery temperature.

The interfaces are located on one side of the module

It is recommended to design the case of the device where you plan to install PS4IoT_V1 so that the bottom edge of the PS4IoT module board touches one of the outer sides of the case, as shown in the pictures. In that case

  • Charge control LED;
  • Power supply input 1 (μUSB);
  • ON/OFF main switch;
  • Aux spare interface – the connector for external devices;

can be used to organize a convenient interface to control the entire device through the user-provided mounting holes in the housing.
