The MAX9390 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested printed-circuit board (PCB) that simplifies the evaluation of the MAX9390 1.5GHz, dual 2 x 2 crosspoint switch. The EV kit accepts low-voltage differential signals (LVDS) or high-speed transistor logic (HSTL) input signals and converts the signals to LVDS outputs for each channel.
The MAX9390 EV kit is designed with 100Ω differential controlled impedance in a four-layer PCB. The board is designed for direct differential probing of the LVDS inputs/outputs. The EV kit operates from a single 3.3V supply. The MAX9390 EV kit can also be used to evaluate the MAX9391, which accepts LVPECL and CML input signals.
