Product Details

The MAXSPCSPARTAN6+ evaluation kit (EV kit) is designed to facilitate the use of Maxim ADCs and DACs with any evaluation board made for Xilinx® Spartan® 6 series FPGAs. The EV kit contains the MAX11612 and MAX11040 ADCs and two cascaded MAX5135 DACs. The MAX11612 is a very-low-power, 4-channel, 2-wire, 12-bit, SAR ADC. This ADC operates with a 5V supply and has an internal reference of 4.096V.

The MAX11040 is an SPI™-compatible, 4-channel, simultaneous-sampling, cascadable, 24-bit, sigma-delta ADC. The MAX5135 is the industry's smallest, 12-bit, voltage-output DAC.
