MAX14914 Peripheral Module

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX14914 peripheral module provides the hardware to evaluate the MAX14914 high-side/push-pull driver that operates as both an industrial digital output (DO) and an industrial digital input (DI). Refer to the MAX14914 IC data sheet for detailed information regarding operation of the IC.

The module can be used in various ways; Maxim sells a low-cost USB2PMB1 adapter board that uses the Munich GUI software for communication through a USB cable. This is not included with this board. Alternatively, any microcontroller or FPGA with a 12-pin Pmod™-compatible connector can be used, but the user needs to adapt the signalling because this is not a standard SPI port. Another option for the user is to wire-wrap a temporary connection from their system to the pins on connector X1.
