Product Details

The MAX586x evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board that contains all the components necessary to evaluate the performance of this family of analog front ends (AFEs’) that integrate a dual-channel analog-to-digital converter (ADC), a dual-channel digital-to- analog converter (DAC), and a 1.024V internal voltage reference. The EV kit board accepts AC- or DC-coupled, differential or single-ended analog inputs for the receive ADC and includes circuitry that converts the transmit DAC differential output signals to single-ended analog outputs. The EV kit includes circuitry that generates a clock signal from an AC sine wave input signal. The EV kit operates from a +3.0V analog power supply, +3.0V digital power supply, and ±5V bipolar power supply.

The EV kit comes with Windows® 7/10-compatible software that provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) for exercising the programmable features of the MAX5863–MAX5866.
