Evaluation Kit for the MAX4180 and MAX4181

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX4180 evaluation kit (EV kit) simplifies evaluation of the MAX4180 low-power, current-feedback amplifier. The EV kit circuit demonstrates the MAX4180 in the noninverting, gain-of-two configuration in either single- or dual-supply mode. RF-style SMA connectors and 50Ω terminating resistors are included for test equipment compatibility.

The MAX4180 EV kit uses a PC board design optimized for high-frequency amplifiers. This board can also be used to evaluate the MAX4181 and other Maxim amplifiers that share the same pinout.
