MAX14912EVKIT

Evaluation Kit for the MAX14912 and MAX14913


Description

The MAX14912/MAX14913 evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX14912 or MAX14913 octal digital output driver. The EV kit includes an evaluation board and a graphical user interface (GUI) that provides communication from a PC to the target device through a USB port.

The EV kit includes Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10 compatible software for exercising the features of the IC. The EV kit GUI allows controlling the MAX14912/MAX14913 in either Parallel Mode or Serial (SPI) Mode. The EV kit must be powered from an external +24V power supply and can consume up to 10A when fully loaded.

The MAX14912EVKIT/MAX14913EVKIT comes with a MAX14912AKN+, or MAX14913AKN+ installed in a 56-pin, 8 x 8mm TQFN-EP package.
