Product Details

The MAX1403 evaluation system (EV system) is a complete, multichannel data-acquisition system consisting of a MAX1403 evaluation kit (EV kit) and a Maxim 68HC11 microcontroller (µC) module. The MAX1403 is a low-power, multichannel, serial-output analog-to-digital converter (ADC). Windows® 95/98-compatible software provides a handy user interface to exercise the MAX1403'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 MAX1403 using a personal computer. Order only the EV kit if the 68HC11 µC module has already been purchased with a previous Maxim EV system or for custom use in other µC-based systems.

The MAX1403 EV kit and EV system can also be used to evaluate the MAX1401. Simply order a free sample of the MAX1401CAI along with the MAX1403EVKIT.

MAX1403 Stand-Alone EV Kit
The MAX1403 EV kit provides a proven PC board layout to facilitate evaluation of the MAX1403 with user-provided software and hardware. It must be interfaced to appropriate timing signals for proper operation. Refer to the MAX1403 data sheet for timing requirements.

MAX1403 EV System
The MAX1403 EV system operates from a user-supplied +5V to +12V DC power supply.
