Evaluation Kit for the MAX9424, MAX9425, MAX9426, MAX9427


The MAX9424 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount printed circuit (PC) board. The EV kit includes the MAX9424, a four-channel low-skew PECL/LVPECL-to-ECL/LVECL translator. The EV kit accepts differential PECL/LVPECL input signals and converts these differential ECL/LVECL signals at an operating frequency up to 3GHz.

The MAX9424 EV kit is a four-layer PC board with 50Ω controlled-impedance traces. It can also be used to evaluate the MAX9425/MAX9426/MAX9427 PECL/LVPECL-to-ECL/LVECL translators with different internal input and output terminations.
