Evaluation System for the MAX5386M, MAX5388, MAX5391, and MAX5393 (MAX5393EVMINIQU) (MAX5393EVMINIQU)The MAX5393 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested PCB that features the MAX5393M 256-tap, 50kΩ, dual digital potentiometer. The MAX5393 dual volatile potentiometers communicate through an SPI™-compatible serial interface (or through a stand-alone 3-wire interface).
The MAX5393EVMINIQU+ evaluation system (EV system) includes the MAX5393 EV kit and a MINIQUSB+ interface board. The MINIQUSB+ interface board can be used to enable PC communication through the USB interface. Windows® 2000- , Windows XP®-, and Windows Vista®-compatible software provides a professional user interface for exercising the MAX5393 features. The program is menu-driven and offers a graphical user interface (GUI) complete with buttons, track bars, and edit boxes. The EV kit software can also be used to evaluate the MAX5386M, MAX5388, and MAX5391. The EV kit can also be interfaced directly to a user-supplied 3-wire system.
The MAX5393 ICs can be powered from a 1.7V, 2.6V, 3.3V, or 5V source generated from the MINIQUSB+ interface board and EV kit circuitry, or from a user-supplied external 1.7V to 5.25V DC power supply. Order the EV system (MAX5393EVMINIQU+) for a complete PC-based evaluation of the MAX5393.
The EV kit also contains PCB footprints for the MAX5386M, MAX5388, and MAX5391. To evaluate these parts, order samples and install the ICs on U1, U4, and U2, respectively.
