Active: In Production.


The MAX6964 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount, 17-output LED driver/GPO controller printed-circuit board (PCB). The circuit uses a MAX6964 IC in a 24-pin QSOP package. The EV kit includes four RGB LEDs and five white LEDs that can be controlled simultaneously by the MAX6964. The EV kit demonstrates the MAX6964 IC's 8-bit PWM LED intensity control, two-phase LED blinking, reset, and unique single-pin, one-of-four I²C or 2-wire address features.

The MAX6964 EV kit also demonstrates the BLINK feature and includes a configurable oscillator circuit. The EV kit can also be reconfigured for evaluating a relay.

The MAX6964 EV kit provides PCB pads for the MAX6964 2-wire serial-interface signals. A CMAXQUSB interface board can be used to enable PC communication through the 2-wire serial interface. Windows® 98SE/2000/XP-compatible GUI software is provided to access the MAX6964 IC. The MAX6964 EV kit can also be interfaced directly to a user-provided 2-wire system.

Order the MAX6964EVCMAXQUSB+ for a complete PC-based evaluation of the MAX6964. Order the MAX6964EVKIT+ if you already have a CMAXQUSB interface board or do not require PC-based evaluation of the MAX6964.
