Product Details

The MAX5395L evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates the MAX5395L single, 256-tap volatile, low-voltage linear digital potentiometer. The device comes in an 8-pin TDFN-EP package. The EV kit provides controls to adjust the wiper and shutdown modes.
The digital potentiometer is controlled by an on-board MAXQ® microcontroller that provides an I²C interface. The EV kit features Windows XP®-, Windows Vista®-, and Windows® 7-compatible software that provides a simple graphical-user interface (GUI) for exercising the device features.
The EV kit comes with the MAX5395LATA+ (10kΩ end-to-end resistance) installed. Contact the factory for samples of the pin-compatible MAX5395MATA+ (50kΩ end-to-end resistance) and MAX5395NATA+ (100kΩ end-to-end resistance).
