Status Explanations for product status codes

Active: In Production.


The MAX9257A/MAX9258A evaluation kit (EV kit) consists of a MAX9257A/MAX9258A evaluation board and software. The EV kit is a fully assembled and tested PCB that evaluates the MAX9257A serializer and the MAX9258A deserializer (SerDes). The EV kit also emulates an electronic control unit (ECU) and a camera. The MAX9258A receives programming instructions from the emulated ECU during the control channel and transmits to the MAX9257A over the serial video link. The instructions can program or update the MAX9258A, MAX9257A, or an external peripheral device such as a camera. The MAX9257A communicates with the peripheral device with either an I²C or UART interface.

The MAX9257A/MAX9258A EV kit includes Windows® 2000/XP- and Windows Vista®-compatible software that provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) for exercising the features of the MAX9257A and MAX9258A. The EV kit is connected to a PC through the USB.
