M5stack basic core battery power on issue (ip5306 strange power management)



  • @arzaman I apologize for the misleading on schematics, it is surely our mistake, we didn't well organize all of the material. We are working on it, will have better material come out soon.



  • @m5-docs I think we can conclude that is and "HW failure of IP5306" no big issue I can use this core for the lab or for application with no battery

    maybe if you can send me a replacement or tell me where to buy the I2C version of IP5306 I can try to replace by myself

    thanks for the support anyway


  • M5Stack

    @arzaman The IP5306 which is iic version is customized. The best way for you is to ask saler for a replacement or ask our saler for a new core or iic version IP5306. Sorry for the inconvenience !



  • @liushasha no problem...I had an old schema and did not check the note you add to the new one. Your documentation level is quite good and indeed If there is a problem I see there is quite good support on the forum and community ... in a way or another I get the info :-)

    most important that now I have more understanding of power management and the fact I can control battery via SW is very important (M5stack is perfect for portable applications battery pwered)

    could be VERY USEFUL a sort of translation of IP5306 Chinese data sheet
    there are few register that provide info but not able to unerstand the usage !!

    from various source I undertand that
    0x78 provides battery level (25/50/75/100)
    0x71 battery charging level (but not sure)
    what about the other registers ? what about control register ??

    simple table with register and functions/value will help a lot "non Chinese" speaking people
    hope to see soon in the documentation !

    thanks

    Davide


  • M5Stack

    @arzaman Thanks. Your seriousness really touched me.



  • I got also documentation for power management

    https://docs.m5stack.com/#/en/api/power?id=getbatterylevel

    clear and comprehnesive

    all ok issue "solved"

    If you are getting an understanding of the power management of the IP5306, would you mind helping me write it up for my book please?
    You will be credited for the information in the book.



  • As an addendum to this, the IP5306 is available from LCSC
    https://lcsc.com/product-detail/PMIC-Battery-Management_IP5306_C181692.html



  • Here is a working code example:

    /*

    • Test of IP5306 functions
      */

    #include <M5Stack.h>

    void setup()
    {
    // initialize the M5Stack object
    M5.begin();
    Wire.begin(); // required to access IP5306
    M5.Lcd.fillScreen(BLACK);
    M5.Lcd.setCursor(0, 10);
    M5.Lcd.setTextColor(WHITE);
    M5.Lcd.setTextSize(2);
    M5.Lcd.printf("IP5306 Function Test\r\n");

    if(!M5.Power.canControl())
    {
    M5.Lcd.setTextColor(RED);
    M5.Lcd.printf("No communication with IP5306 chip");
    while(1);
    }
    }

    void loop()
    {
    M5.Lcd.fillRect(0,180,360,60,0);
    uint8_t bat = M5.Power.getBatteryLevel();
    M5.Lcd.setCursor(0,180);
    if (M5.Power.isCharging()) M5.Lcd.printf("Battery is charging\r\n");
    else M5.Lcd.printf("Battery is not charging\r\n");
    M5.Lcd.printf("Battery Level %d", bat);
    M5.Lcd.progressBar(0, 220, 360, 20, bat);
    delay(5000);
    }



  • @ckuehnel Thanks friend.
