MAX6951 Evaluation Kit

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX6951 evaluation kit (EV kit) is an assembled and tested printed-circuit board (PCB) that demonstrates the MAX6951 serially interfaced 8-digit LED display driver IC. The EV kit is powered by a user-supplied +4VDC to +6.5VDC power supply. A configurable +3.3V or user-configurable low-dropout (LDO) linear regulated power supply provides power for the entire EV kit. An SPI™-compatible serial interface is connected to an IBM PC-compatible computer's parallel port for easy evaluation. The EV kit can easily be reconfigured for interfacing with a user-supplied microcontroller (stand-alone operation).

Windows® 95/98-compatible software provides a user-friendly interface to demonstrate the various features of the MAX6951 IC. The program is menu driven and offers a graphic interface with control buttons. Windows NT/2000 support is available; contact the factory for details.
