Evaluation System for the MAX98390

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


For stereo evaluation and design use a MAX98390EVSYS# board with a MAX98390-ST-AUX# stereo expansion board.

The MAX98390C/D evaluation system (EV system) eval- uates the MAX98390C or the MAX98390D boosted Class D audio amplifier with integrated Dynamic Speaker ManagementTM (DSM) IC. DSM senses the voltage and current at the load and uses patented Maxim algorithms to unlock the full potential of the speaker. The EV sys- tem comprises the MAX98390C or the MAX98390D Development Board (DEV board), Maxim’s Audio Interface Board III (AUDINT3), 5V power supply, reference micro- speaker, USB cable, DSM Sound Studio software, and MAX98390 evaluation software.

It is recommended that the DEV board be evaluated with the AUDINT3 board as an EV system. MAX98390C/D supports standard I2S, left-justified, and TDM digital audio interfaces, as well as I2C for control.

The AUDINT3 board provides 1.8V DVDD, USB-to-PCM, and USB-to-I2C interfaces that are needed to evaluate the DEV board, requiring only a single external power supply for VBAT. The Simplified EV System Block Diagram details the DEV board and the AUDINT3 board.

The easy-to-use DSM Sound Studio software has a simple, yet powerful graphical user interface (GUI) that breaks down the DSM design process into three basic steps: extract, tune, and evaluate. Additionally, DSM Sound Studio provides for a 7 minute quick demo to hear the DSM difference using the included reference microspeaker.

There is also the MAX98390 evaluation software that provides complete access to all hardware registers.
