Design Example Boards are prototype boards based on our Design Example Reports. During IC development, various PCBs are designed and used for data gathering, device statistical compliance testing or product promotion by our sales team. They are not complete Reference Design Kits, and so come with many caveats and compromises. However, they do provide quick access to working examples of ICs that may not be available in kit form.
Generally we have a stock of the boards on offer, sometimes we need to make a new small batch to service requests. We’re happy to do that, but it can take a few days, please be patient if that happens. Each order includes a fully functional power supply and our price covers the cost of expedited shipping and handling. There is no formal support for these boards, but our Apps Forum is a great place to go and ask questions if you run into trouble.
This DER board availability program is intended to help designers speed up their product development using material that we have on hand and unused. We hope you find it useful.
