Description

The MAX1587A evaluation system (EV system) consists of a MAX1587A evaluation kit (EV kit) and a companion Maxim CMAXQUSB board.

The MAX1587A evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount printed circuit board (PCB) that evaluates the MAX1587A power-management IC (PMIC). The IC is optimized for microprocessor-based applications. The MAX1587A integrates three high-performance synchronous step-down DC-DC power supplies, two low-dropout (LDO) regulators, a battery backup supply, and various power-management functions.

The Maxim SMBus™ interface board (CMAXQUSB) allows a PC to use its USB port to emulate an SMBus/I²C-compatible 2-wire interface. Windows® 98SE/2000/XP-compatible software provides a professional interface to exercise the features of the MAX1587A. The program is menu driven and offers a graphical user interface (GUI) with control buttons and a status display.

The MAX1587A EV system (MAX1587AEVCMAXQU) includes both the EV kit and the CMAXQUSB interface board. Order the MAX1587A EV kit if you already have an SMBus interface.
