MAXREFDES72# Pmod™ Adapter

The MAXREFDES72# from Maxim Integrated allows any board with Pmod connections to easily plug into Arduino-compatible microcontroller platforms. Using industry-leading Maxim components, this adapter is ideal for quickly creating Internet of Things designs, and allows for more convenient accessibility to a broader range of digital processors and applications.

The Pmod form-factor has long-allowed integration of professional-grade peripherals into engineering prototypes, especially on FPGA-based platforms. The MAXREFDES72# bridges the gap between the Pmod and Arduino-compatible form-factors, opening a new audience of developers using Arduino-compatible microcontroller boards. The result is greater accessibility to quality components and faster, easier designs.

Maxim offers 15 single-function peripheral modules and 13 reference design boards with Pmod connectors, and now each is easily-compatible with any Arduino-compatible development board.


  • Ease of design and time savings: designers achieve proof of concept faster; no more struggling with the interface between boards
  • Expanded functionality and versatility: makes Pmod boards more accessible to a broader range of applications; quickly-connects to Arduino-compatible microcontroller boards for evaluation

Digilent offers over 80 peripheral modules to add extra functionally to both microcontrollers and FPGAs and is easily-compatible with any Arduino development board utilizing the MAXREFDES72#. See the Digilent Pmod™ Peripheral Modules product highlight.
