Product Details

The MAX5815A evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates the MAX5815A 12-bit, 4-channel, low-power DAC with internal reference and buffered voltage output. The device is in a 14-pin TSSOP package. The EV kit provides controls to change the DAC's outputs, power operations, and references.
The EV kit includes a USB-to-I²C 400kHz interface circuit. 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 MAX5815AAUD+ installed, which is the 12-bit I²C version. Contact the factory for samples of the pin-compatible MAX5815BAUD+ (12-bit), MAX5814AUD+ (10-bit), and MAX5813AUD+ (8-bit).
