Review the ADI MAX32650FTHR Evaluation Kit and Accessories

Table of contents

Are you prototyping a battery powered application that needs an ultra-low power microcontroller? This kit is perfect for you.

This kit is for anyone who is prototyping a battery powered application that needs an ultra-low power microcontroller. However, the kit also contains an adapter board in the Feather Board standard, along with two PMOD sensors: a temperature sensor and a 3-axis accelerometer. Let’s go through each kit component:

ANALOG DEVICES MAX32650FTHR#

The MAX32650FTHR EV kit provides a platform for evaluating the capabilities of the MAX32650 ultra-low-power memory-scalable microcontroller designed specifically for high-performance, battery-powered applications.

ANALOG DEVICES FTHR-PMD-INTZ

FTHR-PMD-INTZ is an add-on feather to PMOD adaptor board especially built for very small form factor MCU host boards called “feathers”, which require special connectors to be used with other PMOD boards. This interposer board interfaces with up to two PMOD boards via the SPI or I2C interface. Furthermore, this add-on adapter board adheres to both standards, the Digilent PmodTm interface specification and Adafruit feather specification.

ANALOG DEVICES EVAL-ADXL355-PMDZ

EVAL-ADXL355-PMDZ is an vertical mount PMOD and breakout evaluation/development board. The PMOD compatible evaluation/prototyping board is a small form factor, low cost, low noise and low drift, 3-axis accelerometer sensor measurement board. When prototyping, this board is used in conjunction with the ADICUP360 or the ADICUP3029 development platform. The ADXL355 is a low noise density, low 0g offset drift, low power, 3-axis MEMS accelerometers with selectable measurement ranges. The ADXL355 supports the ±2g, ±4g and ±8g ranges and offers industry leading noise, offset drift over temperature and long term stability, enabling precision applications with minimal calibration and with very low power consumption.

ANALOG DEVICES EVAL-ADT7420-PMDZ

EVAL-ADT7420-PMDZ is a +/-0.25 degree celsius temperature measurement PMOD board. The PMOD compatible evaluation/prototyping board is a small form factor, low cost ambient temperature sensor measurement board. When prototyping, this board is used in conjunction with the ADICUP360 or the ADICUP3029 development platform. Direct electrical and physical connection will enable you to get started quickly with hardware and software, to help develop your solution. I2C PMOD peripheral connectors can also be found on many 3rd party MCU or FPGA development boards, where the EVAL-ADT7420-PMDZ can be connected directly into those systems, and you can develop your own code using our reference code.
