DS1921K

Thermochron iButton Starter Kit


Description

The DS1921K Thermochron iButton® Starter Kit provides the basic hardware for a quick evaluation of Maxim’s Thermochron iButton family that communicates using the 1-Wire® protocol. The kit uses the USB port of a Microsoft Windows®-based Personal Computer running Vista®, XP SP2 (or higher), or Microsoft Server Operating Systems Windows 2003 or 2008. The kit includes a DS1921 Thermochron iButton device and all hardware required to communicate with it. The DS1921K is also capable of evaluating any other iButton devices, including the high-capacity Thermochron devices (DS1922L, DS1922T, and DS1923), the Hygrochron device (DS1923), and the temperature-only iButton device (DS1920). Please note that the DS1921 is the only iButton device included in the kit. All other iButton devices may be purchased separately. The easy setup process includes the free download of 1-Wire drivers and the OneWireViewer demonstration software to easily communicate with iButton devices through the PC's USB port. The download site for the free 1-Wire drivers and bundled OneWireViewer is found at:

www.maximintegrated.com/1-wiredrivers

For software developers who wish to create custom iButton applications, Maxim provides documentation and a free library of source code examples at www.maximintegrated.com/ibutton under the Software Development Kits link. Please check our website regularly for software updates.

To evaluate plastic-packaged 1-Wire devices instead of the iButton form factor, use the DS9090K instead of the DS1921K. To evaluate other iButton devices besides the Thermochron devices, see the DS9092K.
