Product Details

The MAX196 evaluation kit (EV kit) is an assembled and tested board for prototyping designs using the MAX196 12-bit, multi-range data-acquisition system (DAS). The board includes voltage buffers for all six analog input channels, and is designed to be operated in a stand-alone demo mode using a binary LED readout. It can be adapted to a user-provided 16-bit microprocessor (µP) bus. The EV kit requires a +5V power supply for the MAX196 and ±15V power supplies for the op amps.

The MAX196 EV kit evaluates both the MAX196 and the MAX198. To evaluate the MAX198, order a free sample of the MAX198BCNI along with the MAX196 EV kit.

Maxim also offers a complete µP-based EV system for the 8-bit interface version of this device, the MAX197. Refer to the MAX197 EV kit manual.
