Evaluation Kit for the MAXM86146

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAXM86146 evaluation system (EV system) allows for the quick evaluation of the MAXM86146 optical mod- ule for applications at various sites on the body, particu- larly the wrist. MAXM86146 supports UART, I2C, and SPI compatible interfaces. MAXM86146 has two optical read- out channels that operate simultaneously. The EV system allows flexible configurations to optimize measurement signal quality at minimal power consumption. It helps the user quickly learn about how to configure and use the MAXM86146.

The EV system consists of two boards. MAXSensor BLE# is the main data acquisition board while MAXM86146_ OSB# is the sensor daughter board for MAXM86146. The EV system can be powered using the USB-C supply or LiPo Battery. The EV system comes with a MAXM86146CFU+.
