Evaluation System for the MAX86160

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX86160 Evaluation System (EVSYS) allows for the quick evaluation of the MAX86160 optical AFE for applications at various sites on the body, particularly in-ear applications. The MAX86160 supports a standard I2C-compatible interface. MAX86160 consists of two optical readout channels that can operate simultaneously (Green and IR). The EVSYS allows flexible configurations to optimize measurement signal quality at minimal power consumption, and helps the user quickly learn to configure and use the MAX86160.

The EVSYS consists of two circuit boards. The MAXSensorBLE is the main data acquisition board while the MAX86160_Flex_Bd_EVKIT is a sensor rigid-flex board. The EVSYS can be powered using the USB-C supply or LiPo Battery.

The EVSYS comes with a MAX86160EFN+ device in an 18-lead OESIP package.
