The MAX98360 Evaluation Systems (EV Systems) are fully assembled and tested systems that evaluate the MAX98360A/B/C/D mono Class D audio amplifiers. The EV Systems consist of a MAX98360 Development Board (DEV Board), Maxim’s Audio Interface Board III (AUDINT3), and a USB cable.
It is recommended that the DEV Board be evaluated with the AUDINT3 board, as an EV System. MAX98360A and MAX98360C support the standard I2S interface, and MAX98360B and MAX98360D support standard leftjustified mode. All MAX98360 variants support an 8-channel TDM digital audio interface.
The AUDINT3 board provides the USB-to-PCM interface in addition to the 1.8V VDDIO supply needed to evaluate the DEV Board. The MAX98360 DEV Board requires one additional supply input, 2.5V–5.5V (VDD) when evaluating using the AUDINT3 board.
