Evaluation Kit for the MAX40658/MAX40659

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX40658 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled electrical demonstration kit that provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX40658 and MAX40659 transimpedance amplifier.

Note that the MAX40658 evaluation kit provides an electrical interface to the IC that is similar, but not identical to, a photodiode.

The MAX40658 EV kit PCB comes with a MAX40658AETA+ 18.3kΩ transimpedance device installed. To evaluate the MAX40659AETA+ (36.6kΩ transimpedance), contact the factory for free samples of the pin-compatible device.
