Evaluation System/Evaluation Kit for the MAX6642 (MAX6642EVKIT) (MAX6642EVKIT)The MAX6642 evaluation kit (EV kit) is an assembled and tested PC board with a mounted MAX6642. The EV kit allows full evaluation of the MAX6642 temperature sensor. The MAX6642 monitors its own die temperature and the junction temperature of an external diode-connected transistor. It converts the temperature to 10-bit, 2-wire serial data that may be accessed over a 2-wire serial bus.
The MAX6642 EV kit includes an external diode-connected transistor (2N3906) soldered to the board, which can be removed. The board can then be connected through a twisted pair to remote diodes close to your system.
The MAX6642 evaluation system consists of a Maxim command module (CMOD232) and a MAX6642 EV kit. The CMOD232 board connects to a computer's RS-232 serial port to provide a computer-controlled SMBus™/I²C bus. Windows® 95/98/2000/XP-compatible software provides a user-friendly interface to exercise the features of the MAX6642. The program is menu driven and offers a graphic interface with control buttons and status display.
Order the MAX6642EVCMOD2 for a complete PC-based evaluation of the MAX6642. Order the MAX6642EVKIT if you already have a CMOD232 SMBus interface.
