Evaluation Kit for the MAX2084

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2084 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board that contains all components necessary to evaluate the performance of the MAX2084 low power, high performance 16-channel ultrasound receiver. The EV kit includes software compatible with the Windows XP®, Windows Vista®, and Windows 7® operating systems. The software provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) for programming the features of the MAX2084 over a USB 3.0-compliant, super-speed interface. The MAX2084 digital LVDS outputs (VGA mode) are captured and stored using the companion Xilinx KC705 FPGA evaluation board for the Kintex-7 series FPGAs. In CWD mode, the CWD analog outputs are amplified, filtered and digitized using external circuitry, and the data is stored in the same manner. The FPGA board is compatible with Windows XP®, Windows Vista®, and Windows 7®.
