Evaluation Kit for the MAX4104, MAX4105, MAX4304, and MAX4305

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX4104 evaluation kit (EV kit) simplifies evaluation of the MAX4104 ultra-high-speed, low-noise, 880MHz amplifier. The EV kit circuit demonstrates the MAX4104 in the noninverting unity-gain configuration. RF-style connectors (SMA) and 50Ω terminating resistors are included for test equipment compatibility.

The MAX4104 EV kit can also be used to evaluate the MAX4105, MAX4304, and MAX4305. Simply order a free sample of the appropriate part (MAX4105ESA, MAX4304ESA, or MAX4305ESA), replace the IC on the EV board, and change the gain-setting resistors for the desired gain. Refer to the MAX4104/MAX4105/MAX4304/MAX4305 data sheet for suggested resistor values.
