Description

The MAX5961 evaluation kit (EV kit) circuit demonstrates the MAX5961 quad-channel hot-swap controller that provides voltage and current monitoring. The EV kit circuitry features several jumpers to configure the MAX5961 initial settings. The input voltage range, output voltage limit(s), output current limit(s), and fault-management features are all software programmable. Each channel's undervoltage lockout threshold is also configurable by installing external components. Active-low FAULT_, PG_, and active-low ALERT output signals are provided for circuit monitoring during evaluation.

The EV kit includes Windows® 2000/XP/Vista® (32-bit)-compatible software that provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) for exercising the MAX5961 features.
