Smart Battery Module MARS
Product Overview
The smart Battery Module “MARS” is your Mobile Application platform for Rechargeable Systems. The main aim of
the evaluation module is to give users the possibility to
design their optimal applications with a mobile power
supply with up to 60W and with 1 or 2 Smart Batteries.
Additionally the Smart Battery Manager (SBM) “MARS”
should prevent a crash of the applications, in case of
electrical power outage. This assures an uninterruptible
Power Supply for a certain period. Because different
battery chemistries could be used, the SBM “MARS” uses
smart batteries technology. So the user can also monitor the data about the charge state, battery capacity
and further information. This system uses the System
Management Bus (SMBus) to potentiate the user to control the important functions of smart battery standard.
For providing the input voltage for the SBM “MARS” a ATX

power supply can be used as well as a variable input voltage in the range of 5V to 28VDC.
The layout of the SBM “MARS” is created as a modular
design. This gives the chance to design a new SBM on a
backplane in very short time only with the components that
are really necessary.
The output of „MARS“ can be used differently. It is acting in the same way as a ATX power supply behaves. I. e.
regarding to the PS_ON signal only 5V Standby or all other
voltages are available. Just as well it is possible to supply
the baseboard and COM with the smart battery voltage too.
So every suspend state can be realised to save power.
You profit of the higher effectiveness by concurrent charging of the Smart Batteries, the automatic choice of best
voltage source and the simultaneous discharge of both
batteries increases battery operating time.
