Description

The MAX6660 evaluation system (EV system) consists of a MAX6660 evaluation kit (EV kit) and a companion Maxim System Management Bus (SMBus™) interface board.

The MAX6660 EV kit is an assembled and tested PC board that demonstrates the MAX6660 remote temperature sensor and fan-speed regulator. It monitors the junction temperature of an external diode-connected transistor, and converts the temperature to 8-bit or 11-bit (extended resolution mode), 2-wire serial data. A 2N3906 temperature-sensor transistor comes soldered to the board in a SOT23 package, but it can be removed. The board can then be connected through a twisted pair to a remote diode close to your system. The MAX6660 also incorporates a closed-loop fan controller that regulates fan speed with tachometer feedback. Note: Use this EV kit data sheet in conjunction with the MAX6660 data sheet.

The Maxim SMBus interface board (MAXSMBus) allows an IBM®-compatible PC to use its parallel port to emulate an SMBus 2-wire interface. Windows® 95/98/2000-compatible software provides a user-friendly interface to exercise the features of the MAX6660. The program is menu driven and offers a graphic interface with control buttons and status display. (Note: Windows 2000 requires the installation of a driver; refer to Win2000.pdf or Win2000.txt located on the diskette.)

Order the MAX6660EVSYS for a complete IBM PC-based evaluation of the MAX6660. Order the MAX6660EVKIT if you already have an SMBus interface.
