12-Channel, High-Voltage Sensor with Integrated Cell Balancing and Differential UART for Daisy-Chain Communication

Meets Toughest Automotive and Industrial OEM Requirements for Safety, Performance, and Reliability


The MAX17823 is Maxim's fourth-generation, high-voltage battery-management solution. With higher accuracy, safety-enabling features, and an automotive-hardened differential UART, the MAX17823 provides the highest safety and reliability solution for EV battery-pack designs.

As Maxim's latest ISO 26262 ASIL-D-compliant 12-cell daisy-chain device, the MAX17823 has undergone rigorous testing to ensure operation under the most hostile of EMC/EMI environments. The robust differential UART daisy-chain supports cable lengths of up to 3m and passes tough industry-compliance testing. Cell-reversal capability and 96-cell hot-plug performance make pack assembly easy for high-cell-count systems.

A host of ASIL-enabling features makes safety assessment of pack operation simple and straightforward for any host microcontroller.
