MAX5945EVKIT

Evaluation Kit/Evaluation System for the MAX5945


Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.

Description

The MAX5945 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board featuring an Ethernet four-port network power controller circuit for -48V supply rail systems. The MAX5945 IEEE 802.3af-compliant network power controller is available in a 36-pin SSOP package. The circuit includes four n-channel power MOSFETs used to form the main power-sourcing equipment (PSE) circuit on the EV kit. The MAX5945 is used in power-over-ethernet (POE) applications requiring DC power over four Ethernet network ports. The EV kit provides optical isolation for the I²C-compliant 3-wire interface. The isolated interface connects to a PC parallel port (LPT) through a MAXSMBus interface board. The EV kit can easily be reconfigured for interfacing to a user's stand-alone microcontroller for isolated or nonisolated operation.

The MAX5945 EV kit requires a -32V to -60V power supply (-48V supply rail) capable of supplying 2A or more to the EV kit for powering the power device (PD) through the four 10/100 base-TX Ethernet network ports. The EV kit demonstrates PD discovery, classification, current-limit control and other functions of an IEEE 802.3af-compliant PSE. The user must also supply two separate 3.3V power supplies capable of supplying 100mA for the EV kit's digital logic and 3.3V (VCC) optically isolated 3-wire interface. The MAXSMBus interface board requires a dedicated 9V power supply capable of supplying 250mA. The +9V power supply is not required for nonisolated operation.

The MAX5945 controls the -48V DC power to each of the four Ethernet network ports by controlling each port's power MOSFET and sensing current through the respective port's current-sense resistor. The current is fed to a 10/100 base-TX Voice-over-IP (VoIP) magnetic module at each Ethernet network output port. The MAX5945 EV kit provides a separate independent power channel for each of the four Ethernet network output ports.

The EV kit demonstrates the full functionality of the MAX5945 for each power channel such as configurable operational modes, PD detection, PD classification, overcurrent protection, current foldback, under/overvoltage protection, and AC disconnect monitoring. All of these features are configurable on the EV kit and additional test points for voltage probing and current measurements have been provided.
