Evaluation System for the MAX44005


The MAX44005 evaluation system (EV system) includes one MAX44005 evaluation kit (EV kit) and one MAX44005 daughter board. The EV kit is a fully assembled and tested PCB that evaluates the MAX44005 digital RGB color sensor with proximity sensor and temp sensor. The EV system also includes Windows XP®-, Windows Vista®-, and Windows® 7-compatible software that provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) for exercising the features of the IC. The EV kit comes installed with a MAX44005EDT+ in 6-pin OTDFN package.

The daughter board is an external device-under-test module that also comes with a MAX44005EDT+ installed. The daughter board can be connected to and controlled by the EV kit. The user can also evaluate the IC by connecting a user-supplied controller to the daughter board.
