Product Details

The MAX14917 evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX14917 octal high-side switch. The EV kit includes the MAX14917 evaluation board and a graphical user interface (GUI) that provides communication from a PC to the target device through a USB port and the USB2GPIO interface board. The USB2GPIO EV kit should be ordered separately.

The GUI is compatible with Windows 10 for exercising the features of the MAX14917 IC. The EV kit GUI allows individual control of eight high-side switches through the high-speed SPI interface and receives diagnostic information from the MAX14917 per channel overload diagnostics, communication errors, and thermal shutdown diagnostics.

The MAX14917 EV kit must be powered from an external +24V power supply and can consume more than 10A when fully loaded. The USB2GPIO interface board is powered from the USB port.

The MAX14917 EV kit board comes with a MAX14917AFM+ installed in a 48-pin, 6mm x 6mm FC2QFN package.
