Product Details

The MAX117 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled evaluation board for the 8-bit, 8-channel, +3V MAX117 analog-to-digital converter. Channel selection can be controlled by switches located on the board or by user-provided logic-level signals. An on-board oscillator provides continuous conversions, and the conversion results appear on the LED output display.

The MAX117 EV kit also evaluates the +5V MAX118. To evaluate the MAX118, order a MAX118 free sample, replace the MAX117 with the MAX118, and install the appropriate R9 resistor (see Component List).
