Product Details

The MAX1402 evaluation system (EV system) is a complete, multichannel data-acquisition system consisting of a MAX1402 evaluation kit (EV kit), Maxim 68HC16 microcontroller (µC) module, and USBTO232. The MAX1402 is a low-power, multichannel, serial-output analog to digital converter (ADC). Windows® 98/2000/XP-compatible software provides a handy user interface to exercise the MAX1402's features. Source code in C++ and 68HC11 assembly language is provided for the low-level portion of the software.

Order the EV system for comprehensive evaluation of the MAX1402 using a personal computer. Order only the EV kit if the 68HC16 µC module has already been purchased with a previous Maxim EV system, or for custom use in other µC-based systems.

The MAX1402 EV kit and EV system can also be used to evaluate the MAX1400. Simply order a free sample of the MAX1400CAI along with the MAX1402 EV kit.

MAX1402 Stand-Alone EV Kit
The MAX1402 EV kit provides a proven printed-circuit board (PCB) layout to facilitate evaluation of the MAX1402 with user-supplied software and hardware. It must be interfaced to appropriate timing signals for proper operation. Refer to the MAX1402 IC data sheet for timing requirements. See Table 2 in the full data sheet, Jumper Functions.

MAX1402 EV System
The MAX1402 EV system operates from a user-supplied +8V to +12VDC power supply.
