AD5592 Snack Board:

1001-ASM-1002-00 - AD5592 Snack Board without pin header

1001-ASM-1002-01 - AD5592 Snack Board with straight pin headers


The AD5592 Snack Board is a simple breakout board that allows the AD5592RBCPZ-1-RL7, made by Analog Device, to be used without the need to design and manufacture a custom circuit board. The AD5592 has 8 IO pins that can be configured as analog inputs, analog outputs, digital inputs, or digital outputs. It interfaces with a host device over a Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) available on many development boards and single board computers such as the Raspberry Pi.


The advantage of using a Snack Board is that most of the capability of a small yet capable device can be added to a hobbyist or engineering prototype project quickly at a very low cost point compared to the alternative of designing, building, and assembling your own custom PCB just to try it out. Keep in mind, however, that the prototype nature of the Snack Board inserted into your project may prevent the AD5592 from performing to the full extent of the data sheet. In our projects we attempt to wring it out, but results may vary, especially when using long jumper wires and fast SPI bus clocks.
