Product Details

The MAX98396 evaluation system (EV system) evaluates the MAX98396 Mono Class-D Audio Amplifier featuring Dynamic Headroom Tracking (DHT) and Clock-and-Data Monitoring. The EV system consists of the MAX98396 Development Board (DEV board), Audio Interface Board III (AUDINT3), a micro-USB cable, and the MAX98396 evaluation software.

It is recommended that the DEV board be evaluated with the AUDINT3 board as an EV system. The MAX98396 supports standard I2S, left-justified, and TDM digital audio interfaces, as well as I2C for control.

The AUDINT3 board provides the USB-to-PCM and USB-to- I2C interfaces in addition to the 1.8V AVDD supply and the 1.2V DVDD and DVDDIO supplies that are needed to evaluate the DEV board. The IC DEV board requires two additional supply inputs, 3V to 5.5V (VBAT) and 3V to 20V (PVDD). Figure 1 details the DEV board and the AUDINT3 board.
