19-2500; Rev. 0; 7/02 MAX4410 Evaluation Kit The MAX4410 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that evaluates the MAX4410 DirectDrive stereo headphone amplifier. DirectDrive eliminates the two large DC-blocking capacitors typically required between the output of the amplifier and the headphones. The MAX4410 EV kit is designed to be driven by the lineout of a CD player or directly connected to any stereo audio source. The MAX4410 EV kit includes RCA jacks on the input and a 3.5mm headphone jack on the output to facilitate easy connections to the circuit board. Features ♦ No DC-Blocking Capacitors Required ♦ 1.8V to 3.6V Single-Supply Operation ♦ 80mW Per Channel into 16Ω ♦ 0.003% THD + N at 1kHz ♦ Low-Profile (1.2mm max) Design ♦ Ultra-Compact Solution ♦ Fully Assembled and Tested Surface-Mount Board ♦ Independent Left/Right Shutdown Controls Ordering Information PART TEMP RANGE IC PACKAGE 0°C to +70°C MAX4410EVKIT 14 TSSOP Component Suppliers SUPPLIER PHONE FAX WEBSITE AVX 843-946-0238 843-626-3123 www.avxcorp.com Taiyo Yuden 800-348-2496 847-925-0899 www.t-yuden.com TDK 847-803-6100 847-390-4405 www.component.tdk.com Note: Please indicate that you are using the MAX4410 when contacting these component suppliers.

Shutdown Selection JUMPER SHUNT POSITION JU1 JU2 Procedure The MAX4410 EV kit is fully assembled and tested. Follow the steps below to verify board operation. Do not turn on the power supply until all connections are completed: 1) Plug the headphones into the 3.5mm headphone jack. 2) Ensure that the stereo audio source is turned off. 3) Connect the disabled stereo audio source through the RCA phono jacks.

Detailed Description The MAX4410 EV kit is a stereo, single-supply headphone amplifier. The MAX4410 EV kit is designed to be driven by the stereo lineout of a CD player or directly connected to any stereo audio source. The input impedance is 10kΩ. The -3dB corner frequencies are approximately 16Hz and 159kHz and are dependent on components R1–R4 and C1–C4. The MAX4410 EV kit has a gain of -1 and can be powered with a 1.8V to 3.6V supply. To optimize the audio performance of the MAX4410, it is important to follow these layout guidelines. The MAX4410 EV kit uses two ground planes to minimize switching noise from the charge pump coupling into the audio signal. The two planes are star-connected at one point (GND pad). Capacitors C5, C6, and C7 should be placed close to the IC and connected with wide traces. Short, wide traces should be used to connect the power pins of the IC to the power supply. Shutdown Control The MAX4410 EV kit provides two shutdown pins (SHDNL, SHDNR) to disable the outputs. Jumpers JU1 and JU2 control the left and right channels, respectively (see Table 1 for shutdown shunt positions). Shorting pin 2 of JU1 to pin 2 of JU2 allows the user to control both channels’ shutdown pins simultaneously by driving the provided user pad SHDN with an external source (see Figure 1 for shunt configuration). SHDNL and SHDNR are CMOS logic-level inputs. 2 _______________________________________________________________________________________ MAX4410 Evaluation Kit Evaluates: MAX4410 TP3 OUTPUT J3 3 1 TP1 TP2 2 8 C1 1µF 10V LEFT IN J1 VCC 1 2 11 R4 10kΩ 1% MAX4410 10 R1 10kΩ 1% OUTR U1 R3 10kΩ 1% C3 100pF 2 1 OUTL 4 JU1 1 INL INR PGND SGND SHDNL SHDNR C4 100pF 13 VCC 14 12 RIGHT IN J2 2 JU2 1 2 R2 10kΩ 1% 1 SHDN 3 3 9 VCC GND C2 1µF 10V 2 C8 10µF C5 2.2µF SVDD SVSS PVDD PVSS C1N C1P 7 6 C7* 2.2µF 5 3 C6* 2.2µF *C6 AND C7 CAN BE REDUCED IN SIZE.
