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.
