Evaluation Kit for MAX14890E

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX14890E evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested PCB that contains the MAX14890E incremental encoder interface. The MAX14890E incremental encoder receiver contains four differential receivers and two single-ended receivers for RS-422, HTL, TTL, and digital signals.

Power for the transceiver can be provided from a single +5V source or from an on-board 24V to 5V step-down circuit. The MAX14890E EV kit includes terminal blocks for motor and power connections.

On-board switches and jumpers are included to configure the MAX14890E in pin-control mode. The evaluation board is also designed with the Arduino® form-factor for easy software evaluation and development.
