说明 The MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 evaluation kits (EV kits) simplify evaluation of the MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 CATV upstream amplifiers. Each kit includes a data interface that can be programmed through the parallel port of a standard PC. Software (Windows® 95/98 compatible) is included to facilitate this function. This software allows the user to program both the gain and transmit modes through a simple user interface.
Access to the device input and output is provided through 50Ω SMA connectors. The input is matched to 50Ω, while the output circuit includes a minimum-loss pad that presents a 75Ω load to the output transformer when using 50Ω test equipment.
