Evaluation Kit for the MAX66100, MAX66120, and MAX66140

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX66903 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully functional ISO 15693 reader that supports all the mandatory and optional commands in the ISO 15693 protocol. The EV kit also performs a SHA-1 calculation using the on-board microcontroller. SHA-1 is a secure hash algorithm with a challenge-and-response authentication (ISO/IEC 10118-2 SHA-1). This feature was added to support the MAX66140.

The EV kit is complete with an on-board HF antenna, an in-circuit jumper option for an external 50Ω antenna, USB connectivity with parasitic power, and on-board microcontroller with modulation and demodulation circuitry. The EV kit also includes Windows XP®-, Windows Vista®-, and Windows® 7-compatible software that provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) that supports the features of the MAX661x0 devices.
