Product Details

The MAX14916PMB (peripheral module board) provides the hardware to evaluate the MAX14916 Octal 1A / Quad 2A industrial high-side switch with diagnostics. Refer to the MAX14916 IC data sheet for detailed information on the operation of the IC. The module takes advantage of the features in the MAX14916, which allow each channel to independently be toggled on and off and continuously monitored for faults. Note the module provides a subset of the MAX14916 features. For greater flexibility, refer to the MAX14916 evaluation kit.

The MAX14916PMB# has a 12-pin Pmod™-compatible connector for serial peripheral interface (SPI) communication. The peripheral module can be used in various ways; Analog Devices sells low-cost USB2PMB2# and USB2GPIO# adapter boards that use the Munich GUI software for SPI communication through a USB cable. This is not included with this board but is available from Analog Devices or one of its distributors. Alternatively, use any microcontroller or field programmable gate array (FPGA) with a 12-pin Pmodcompatible connector for SPI communication.

The PCB dimension is 62mm long x 22.6mm wide, with the width determined by the size of the DO terminal block.
