Evaluation Kit for the MAX5863, MAX5864, and MAX5865

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX5865 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board that contains all the components necessary to evaluate the performance of the MAX5865 40Msps analog front end. The MAX5865 integrates a dual-channel analog-to-digital converter (ADC), a dual-channel digital-to-analog converter (DAC), and a 1.024V internal voltage reference. The EV kit board accepts AC- or DC-coupled, differential or single-ended analog inputs for the receive ADC and includes circuitry that converts the transmit DAC differential output signals to single-ended analog outputs. The EV kit includes circuitry that generates a clock signal from an AC sine wave input signal. The EV kit operates from a +3.0V analog power supply, +3.0V digital power supply, and ±5V bipolar power supply.

The EV kit comes with Windows® 98/2000/XP-compatible software that provides an interface to exercise the features of the MAX5865. The program is menu driven and offers a graphical user interface (GUI) with control buttons and status displays. The GUI is used to control the MAX5865 SPI-compatible serial interface.

The MAX5865 EV kit evaluates the 22Msps MAX5864 or the 7.5Msps MAX5863 analog front end (IC replacement is required).
