Product Details

The MAX9972 evaluation kit is a fully assembled and tested printed circuit board (PCB) that simplifies evaluation and demonstrates the functionality of the MAX9972, a quad-channel, ultra-low power pin electronics IC. The MAX5734 DAC is included in the EV kit for pin electronic IC level setting. Standard 50Ω SMA connectors are included on the EV kit for the inputs and outputs to allow for quick and easy evaluation on the test bench.

The EV kit contains a microcontroller (MCU) that translates between the SPI interface and USB to allow the user to configure internal registers and modes with graphical user interface (GUI) software running on a PC. The EV kit includes Windows® 10-compatible software that provides a simple GUI for configuration of all the MAX9972 registers through SPI. The EV kit is fully assembled and tested at the factory.

This document includes the MAX9972 EV Kit Bill of Materials, a list of equipment required to evaluate the device, a straightforward test procedure to verify functionality, a description of the EV kit circuit, MAX9972 EV Kit Schematic Diagrams, and MAX9972 EV Kit PCB Layout Diagrams.
