The EVAL-ADuM4137EBZ board demonstrates the advanced features of the ADuM4137 while maintaining flexibility in a testing environment. The EVAL-ADuM4137EBZ board layout delivers a circuit that is easy to manipulate via jumper pins. A more optimized layout is possible and increases the performance of the system.
The EVAL-ADuM4137EBZ board works with the USB-SDP-CABLEZ programming cable to access the secondary side electronically erasable programmable read only memory (EEPROM) and includes the option to drive the serial peripheral interface (SPI) bus with any other SPI compatible system. The USB-SDP-CABLEZ operates with a 3.3 V logic supply, while the ADuM4137 has an internal 5 V regulator. A resistor divider on the MISO line is included in the R21 and R22 resistors to allow interfacing.
This guide demonstrates how to use the ADuM4137 evaluation software for accessing the user trim bits and explains how to simulate EEPROM settings and program bits into nonvolatile memory.
For full details on the ADuM4137, see the ADuM4137 data sheet, which should be consulted in conjunction with this user guide when using this evaluation board.
