Analog Devices / Maxim Integrated MAX2224x/MAX2229x Evaluation Kits

Analog Devices MAX2224x/MAX22249x Evaluation Kits provide a proven design to evaluate the MAX22245/MAX22246 and MAX22290/MAX22291, reinforced, 2-channel, galvanic digital isolators. The MAX22245/MAX22246 and MAX22290/MAX22291 2-Ch Digital Isolators transfer data in opposite directions, ideal for isolating a transceiver’s Tx and Rx lines.

Three types of evaluation boards are available to support this family of isolators. The MAX22246CWEVKIT# is fully assembled and tested and
comes populated with the MAX22246CAWA+. The MAX2224XWEVKIT# is a generic board with U1 unpopulated, allowing the user to select a device from the MAX22245/MAX22246 series. The MAX2229XSEVKIT# is a generic board with an unpopulated narrow SOIC footprint as U1, allowing the user to install any MAX22290/ MAX22291 series. Among the three evaluation boards, devices with either wide-body 8-pin SOIC package or a narrow-body 8-pin SOIC package are supported.

The Analog Devices MAX2224x/MAX2229x Evaluation Kits should be powered from two independent isolated power supplies with a nominal output voltage range from 1.71V to 5.5V. A single power supply can also be used to evaluate the device’s electrical parameters without any isolation between the two sides.
