Product Details

The MAX173xxX/MAX173xxG evaluation kits (EV kits) are fully assembled and tested surface-mount PCBs that evaluate the stand-alone pack-side fuel gauge IC with protector and SHA-256 authentication for 1-cell lithiumion/ polymer batteries.

The EV kits include the IC evaluation board with integrated I2C/1-Wire®- interface and USB micro-B cable. Windows®-based graphical user interface (GUI) software is available for use with the EV kits and can be downloaded from Maxim’s website at www.maximintegrated.com/products/MAX17303 (under the Design Resources tab). Windows 7 or newer Windows operating system is required to use with the EV kit GUI software.
