Quick Start Required Equipment The following equipment is required: • MAX1932 EV kit • 5V, 500mA DC power supply • One voltmeter • (Optional) Windows 95/98/2000 computer with a spare parallel (printer) port • (Optional) 25-pin I/O extension cable Procedure with a Computer Do not turn on the power supply until all connections are completed: 1) Install shunts on jumpers JU2, JU3, and JU4. 2) With the power off, connect the 5V DC power supply to the MAX1932 EV kit. 3) Connect the 25-pin I/O extension cable from the computer’s parallel port to the MAX1932 EV kit board. The EV kit software uses a loopback connection to confirm that the correct port has been selected. 4) Install the evaluation software by running the INSTALL.EXE program on the floppy disk. The program files are copied and icons are created for them in the Windows Start menu. 5) Turn on the power supply. Verify that V OUT is approximately 40V. 6) Start the MAX1932 program by opening its icon in the Start menu. 7) Click on SPI 3-Wire Parallel Port Diagnostic (Figure 1). 8) Click on Bit-Banging Serial Interface. 9) Enter 0x01 into “Data bytes to be written” and click on Send Now (Figure 2). 10) Verify that the voltage at the VOUT pad is approximately 90V. 2 Figure 1. MAX1932 Evaluation Software’s Main Window to Access the SPI 3-Wire Parallel Port Diagnostic Utility 11) Enter 0xFF into the “Data bytes to be written” box and click on Send Now. 12) Verify that the voltage at the VOUT pad is approximately 40V. 13) Header J2 is provided to monitor the parallel port pins supplying the CLK_P, CS_P, DIN_P (5V signals), and loopback signal. The CS, SCLK, and DIN pads on the EV kit’s bottom edge are VCC levelshifted signals from the MAX1841 translator. Both signal locations can be used for monitoring. For instructions on selecting the feedback resistors for other output voltages, see the Output Voltage Range section. Procedure without a Computer Do not turn on the power supply until all connections are completed: 1) Remove shunts on jumpers JU2, JU3, and JU4. 2) With the power off, connect the 5V DC power supply to the MAX1932 EV kit. 3) Turn on the power supply. Verify that V OUT is approximately 40V. _______________________________________________________________________________________ MAX1932 Evaluation Kit Output Voltage Range Step-Up Switching Regulator Output Range The MAX1932 EV kit’s step-up switching regulator output range is set from 40V to 90V by feedback resistors R5, R6, and R8. To generate output voltage ranges other than 40V to 90V (4.5V to 15V, 4.5V to 45V, or 20V to 60V), select different external voltage-divider resistors (R5, R6, and R8). Refer to the Output and DAC Adjustment Range section in the MAX1932 data sheet for instruction on selecting resistors. Figure 2. Parallel Port Diagnostic Window’s Bit-Banging Serial Interface Tab Jumper Selection Stand-Alone Configuration Detailed Description The MAX1932 EV kit contains a step-up switching regulator that includes an 8-bit DAC with an SPI-compatible serial interface. The output of the EV kit has two settings: the range voltage setting and a specific voltage setting within the range. As configured, the step-up switching regulator can generate an output range of 40V to 90V and provide up to 2mA of current to the output with 4.75V input. The step-up switching-regulator output voltage can be reconfigured to ranges of 4.5V to 15V, 4.5V to 45V, and 20V to 60V with proper resistor selection (see the Output Voltage Range section). The voltage setting within the range is set by the 8-bit DAC that receives input data from the SPI-compatible interface. The EV kit connects to a compatible PC parallel port and uses the port to control the EV kit. The EV kit’s SPI signals are connected to a MAX1841 level translator (U2). The translator level shifts the computer’s parallel port logic 5V signals to the EV kit’s logic VCC voltage level chosen by the user. The translator can function with voltages down to 2.7V. The level The MAX1932 EV kit features four jumpers (JU1–JU4) to reconfigure the EV kit for stand-alone operation mode or PC/software control mode. Tables 1 and 2 list the options for the desired evaluation mode. Note: All jumpers must be configured for only one mode at a time. A suitable voltage must be selected for standalone mode. Configure all jumpers for either standalone or PC/software control mode. Detailed Description of Software The MAX1932 EV kit software’s main window has a button to start the SPI 3-wire parallel port diagnostic utility used for bit-banging data into the MAX1932. Click on SPI 3-Wire Parallel Port Diagnostic to start the utility. SPI/3-Wire Diagnostic The SPI/3-wire diagnostic screen allows you to send SPI or 3-wire commands, or manipulate the parallel port pins directly. Each of the 25 pins is represented by a checkbox. A checkmark means that the corresponding pin is at a logic-high level. Unused and grounded pins are gray. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________ 3 Evaluates: MAX1932 translator’s parallel port side is powered by the parallel port’s data pins 6, 7, 8, and 9, diodes D2/D3, and capacitor C6, which provides approximately 5V to the translator’s input. The power supply connected to V CC provides power to the level translator’s output. A 5-pin header (J2) is provided for monitoring the 5V CLK_P, CS_P, DIN_P nonlevel-translated and loopback signals coming from the parallel port cable. The EV kit can be reconfigured for stand-alone operation and connected to an external microcontroller for evaluation. PC board pads are provided for interfacing or monitoring the CS, SCLK, and DIN level-translated pins of the MAX1932 IC. Evaluates: MAX1932 MAX1932 Evaluation Kit Table 1.

The SPI interface sends and receives data simultaneously on separate pins. Parallel port pin 2 drives the CLK_P, pin 3 drives CS_P, and pin 4 drives DIN_P. The data to be sent is 8-bit data represented by a twodigit hexadecimal DAC code. The DAC code ranges from 0x01 to 0xFF. The output is at the higher limit, 90V, when the DAC code is 0x01, and at the lower limit, 40V, when the DAC code is 0xFF. The DAC code is entered in the “Data bytes to be written” box and transmitted by clicking on Send Now. 4 EV KIT MODE Troubleshooting Problem: Cannot find the MAX1932 EV kit parallel port connection. Ensure that the I/O extension cable is connected to a parallel port and not to a SCSI or other type of port. Verify that the supplied LPTCON.VXD is in the same directory as MAX1932.EXE. If a local printer driver is installed, temporarily disable it. The software does not work if the program icon is dragged onto the Windows desktop. _______________________________________________________________________________________ MAX1932 Evaluation Kit L1 100µH VIN C1 1µF 6.3V PGND D1 C2 0.047µF 100V 11 VIN R1 806Ω 1% Evaluates: MAX1932 VIN VOUT R2 91kΩ C3 0.1µF 100V GND 3 CL 3 CL GATE 10 1 N1 VIN 2 CS R3 1MΩ CS U1 12 SCLK 1 CS MAX1932 CS+ CS- SCLK DACOUT R9 1MΩ FB 4 5 6 2 R10 1MΩ GND COMP DIN GND 9 DIN R5 1MΩ 1% 7 SCLK DIN R6 24.9kΩ 1% 8 R8 32.4kΩ 1% R7 20kΩ THERM C4 0.22µF R11 SHORT (PC TRACE) GND Figure 3.
