Evaluation Kit for the MAX5988A


Description

The MAX5988A evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board featuring an Ethernet port, network powered-device (PD) interface controller circuit for -57V supply rail systems. The EV kit uses the MAX5988A IEEE® 802.3af/at-compliant network PD interface controller in a 20-pin TQFN package with an exposed pad. The IC is used in Power-over-LAN (PoL) applications requiring DC power from an Ethernet network port for PDs such as IP phones, wireless access nodes, and security cameras.

The EV kit receives power from IEEE 802.3af/atcompliant power-sourcing equipment (PSE). Refer to the MAX5988A IC data sheet for PSE controllers. The PSE provides the required -36V to -57V DC power over an unshielded twisted-pair Ethernet network cable to the EV kit’s RJ45 magnetic jack. The EV kit features a 1 x 1 gigabit RJ45 magnetic jack and two active full-wave rectifiers (DM1, DM2) for separating the DC power provided by an endspan or midspan Ethernet system.

The EV kit can also be powered by a wall adapter power source. The EV kit provides PCB pads to accept the output of a wall adapter power source. When a wall adapter power source is detected, it always takes precedence over the PSE source and allows the wall adapter to power the EV kit.

The EV kit demonstrates the full functionality of the IC, such as PD detection signature, PD classification signature, inrush current control, input undervoltage lockout (UVLO), and an integrated DC-DC step-down converter. The integrated step-down converter operates at a fixed 215kHz switching frequency and is configured for a nonisolated +5V DC output that can deliver 1.5A of current.

Warning: The EV kit is designed to operate with high voltages. Dangerous voltages are present on this EV kit and on equipment connected to it. Users who power up this EV kit or power the sources connected to it must be careful to follow safety procedures appropriately to work with highvoltage electrical equipment.

Under severe fault or failure conditions, this EV kit may dissipate large amounts of power, which could result in the mechanical ejection of a component or of component debris at high velocity. Operate this kit with care to avoid possible personal injury.
