Product Details

The MAX14578 evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX14578 USB battery charger detector in a 12-bump wafer-level package (WLP). The IC features charger detection compliant to USB Battery Charging Revision 1.1, dedicated charger detection, Apple charger detection, China YD/T1591-compliant charger detection, and USB pass-through communication. The EV kit has various power options to separate the charging current from the system current. The EV kit is self-powered through USB, but needs external power to demonstrate charging. The EV kit features the MAX8903A 1-cell lithium-ion (Li+) DC-DC USB charger for interfacing with the MAX14578 in an application setting.

The EV kit uses Windows XP®-, Windows Vista®-, and Windows® 7-compatible software to provide a simple graphical user interface (GUI) to simplify evaluation. The EV kit GUI enables testing of the IC's features. The EV kit PCBs come with a MAX14578EEWC+ installed.
