Product Details

The MAX5774 evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates the operation of the MAX5774 32-channel, 14-bit, voltage-output digital-to-analog converter (DAC). The DAC integrates an SPI™/DSP-compatible serial interface to control each channel output. Each DAC channel has its own programmable input, gain, and offset register, and its output voltage can be set in the -2.5V to +7.5V range.

The MAX5774 EV kit circuit includes USB-to-SPI communication circuitry that generates the proper SPI signals to program the DAC outputs.

The MAX5774 EV kit includes Windows® 2000/XP® and Windows Vista® (32-bit)-compatible software that provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) for exercising the MAX5774 features.

The MAX5774 EV kit can also evaluate the MAX5773 and MAX5775. The MAX5773 has a 0 to +10V range, and the MAX5775 has a -5V to +5V range. To evaluate the MAX5773 or MAX5775, replace U1 with a MAX5773UCB+ or MAX5775UCB+.
