Description

The MAX3987 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested PCB that demonstrates the capabilities of the MAX3987 8.5Gbps quad equalizer and preemphasis driver. The EV kit can be controlled using a PC to run the evaluation software or using DIP switches mounted on the EV kit to bias hardware pins. The included software is Windows® compatible and provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) to configure all available device features. The software communicates with the EV kit through a USB port and provides three methods for configuration. The primary method is a simple point-and-click interface. The other debug interfaces allow direct register read/write operations, or software-controlled external pin programming. The data I/O traces on the EV kit are controlled impedance with matched lengths. All external connections are AC-coupled with standard SMA connectors for easy connection to test equipment.
