Evaluation Kit for the MAX12553, MAX12554, and MAX12555

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX12553/MAX12554/MAX12555 evaluation kits (EV kits) are fully assembled and tested PCBs that contain all the components necessary to evaluate the performance of this family of 14-bit, analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). These ADCs accept differential or single-ended analog inputs, however, the EV kits allow for evaluation with either type of signal from one single-ended analog-signal source. The digital outputs produced by the ADCs are captured easily with a user-provided high-speed logic analyzer or data-acquisition system. The EV kits operate from a 1.8V and a 3.3V power supply and include circuitry that generates a low-jitter clock signal from an AC signal provided by the user.
