Description

Digital-to-analog converters (DACs) provide accurate output voltages for actuation and control in many electronic applications such as industrial, medical and RF systems. The MAX5171 is a highly accurate, 14-bit voltage output DAC. Development with DACs involves expertise in analog systems, power supplies, digital interfaces, and firmware. Now, accelerate the development process using the MAX5171 breakout board.

This breakout board provides rapid prototyping and development with the MAX5171 (a 14-bit, voltage-output DAC). It interfaces to any Arduino®-compatible or Mbed™-compatible platform system with expansion ports configurable for SPI communication. Additionally, the MAX5171 breakout board works with systems that have a Pmod™ connection, a 2x6 right-angle header at board edge (compatible with Digilentinc.com Pmod interface spec) interface type 2A (expanded SPI) on 2x6 header at board edge. The breakout board also comes with schematics, design files, and firmware for immediate use and forking to future projects.

The board directly interfaces to SPI with logic levels in the range 2.7V to 5.5V. (Note: The MAX5171 is specified for 4.5V to 5.5V operation, and the pin-compatible MAX5173 is specified for 2.7V to 3.6V operation.) The board comes installed with MAX5171AEEE+ installed. Example firmware is provided for Arduino and Mbed system boards.
