Product Details

The MAX6952 evaluation kit (EV kit) is an assembled and tested printed circuit board (PCB) that demonstrates the MAX6952 SPI™-interfaced four-digit 5 x 7 matrix LED display driver. Two cascaded MAX6952s are used to drive eight 5 x 7 monocolor matrix displays. The EV kit is powered by a user-supplied 2.7VDC to 5.5VDC power supply. The SPI-compatible serial interface is connected to an IBM-compatible PC parallel port for easy evaluation. The EV kit can be reconfigured for interfacing to a user's microcontroller for standalone operation.

Windows® 95/98/2000-compatible software provides a user-friendly interface to demonstrate the features of the MAX6952 IC. The program is menu driven and offers a graphic interface with control buttons.
