Default Evaluation Boards

Would I be right in saying that companies produce evaluation boards that members of the public can buy ? Or are they for their own internal development ?

Does an evalution boeard just require a power supply and some digital connections ? Or is it more complicated than that ?

If they are available to the public, which companies supply them ?

Register your company name with the manufacturer and ask for them. If you are intending to use them for a product the chip makers will be happy to help you evaluate their product in the hope you will buy thousands of them later on.
These boards are deigned to make testing the device easy for the typical small R&D workshop. Power supplies would not be included because they expect you to use a bench supply.

If you are a bonified audio developement/manufacturing company and the sales team at a given vendor thinks you will be buying lots of DAC chips, they will give you the eval boards. It usually requires a face to face meeting where teh vendor's sales rep fully qualifies you as a customer with high potential for purchasing a high dollar amount of chips from them.

It's a more rigorous qualifying process than requesting chip samples. The other issue is the chip companies only make so many eval boards.

The boards typically cost $180 to $275 bucks if you need to buy one.
