The MAX9972 four-channel, ultra-low-power, pin-electronics IC includes, for each channel, a three-level pin driver, a window comparator, a passive load, and force-and-sense Kelvin-switched parametric measurement unit (PMU) connections. The driver features a -2.2V to +5.2V voltage range, includes high-impedance and active-termination (3rd-level drive) modes, and is highly linear even at low voltage swings. The window comparator features 500MHz equivalent input bandwidth and programmable output voltage levels. The passive load provides pullup and pulldown voltages to the device-under-test (DUT).

Low-leakage, high-impedance, and terminate controls are operational configurations that are programmed through a 3-wire, low-voltage, CMOS-compatible serial interface. High-speed PMU switching is realized through dedicated digital control inputs.

This device is available in an 80-pin, 12mm x 12mm body, 0.50mm pitch TQFP with an exposed 6mm x 6mm die pad on the bottom of the package for efficient heat removal. The MAX9972 is specified to operate over the 0°C to +70°C commercial temperature range, and features a die temperature monitor output.

Applications

  • Active Burn-In Systems
  • DRAM Probe Testers
  • Low-Cost Mixed-Signal/System-on-Chip (SoC) Testers
  • NAND Flash Testers
  • Structural Testers

Product Detail

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.
