Status Explanations for product status codes

Active: In Production.


The MAX3170 evaluation kit (EV kit) combines Maxim’s multiprotocol clock/data transceiver (MAX3170), control transceiver (MAX3171), and cable terminator (MAX3172) chips. This chipset forms a complete software-selectable data terminal equipment (DTE) or data communications equipment (DCE) interface port.

The MAX3170, MAX3171, and MAX3172 chipset supports V.28 (RS-232), V.11 (RS-449/V.36, EIA-530, EIA-530A, X.21), and V.35 protocols. Compliance for NET1, NET2, TBR-1, and TBR-2 has been certified by TUV Telecom Services, Inc. Internal charge pumps allow this kit to operate from a single +3.3V supply.

The MAX3170 EV kit was designed to take advantage of the chipset’s flow-through pinout. This kit includes a 40-pin header (logic signals), a female DB25 connector (protocol signals), three SMA connectors (high-speed logic signals), and scope probe connectors for measuring the high-speed data signals (logic and protocol signals).
