Hi, I'm Doug Williams, an application engineer for the device. You can download the data sheet and EVM user's guide at http://www.ti.com/product/bq34z100?DCMP=analog_power_mr&HQS=bq34z100-pr Also, you may benefit from our E2E community support forum at: http://e2e.ti.com/support/power_management/battery_management/default.aspx The fuel gauge uses a single sense resistor to measure current, a single thermistor for temperature, and a simple voltage divider for stack voltage.

Sounds like a solution may be at hand for the vexing problem of monitoring an array of battery cells. What kinds of connections and sensors are needed for each cell?
