Tag Evaluation Kit for the MAX66242, Requires NFC Reader

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX66242 evaluation kit (EV kit) reference board is a ready-to-use PCB that showcases one of Maxim’s MAX662XX family of secure dual-interface tag/transponder ICs. The board is built with a octagonal-shaped antenna construction (see the EV Kit Photo and Figure 2) tuned to 13.56MHz.

The EV kit is a platform that allows designers, test, and systems engineers to evaluate our MAX66242 tag solution. The EV kit allows users to evaluate the performance and capabilities of certain key features of the part and is a great platform to get started on a new NFC/RFID tag design.
