Product Details

The MAX5183 evaluation kit (EV kit) is designed to simplify evaluation of the 8-bit and 10-bit, dual, 40MHz, simultaneous-update or alternate-phase-update MAX5180/MAX5183, MAX5182/MAX5185, MAX5186/MAX5189, and MAX5188/MAX5191 digital-to-analog converters (DACs). The board contains all circuitry necessary for evaluating the dynamic performance of these high-speed converters, including a circuit to convert the DAC's differential outputs into single-ended outputs. Since the design combines high-speed analog and digital circuitry, the board layout calls for special precautions and design features.

Connector pads for power supplies (AVDD, DVDD, VCC, and VEE), DAC outputs (VOUT1, VOUT1A, VOUT2, and VOUT2A), and SMA connectors for the digital and control inputs (D0-D9,active-low CS, CLK) simplify connection to the EV kit. The four-layer board layout is optimized for best dynamic performance.

The MAX5183 dual, 10-bit, 40MHz, simultaneous update DAC is installed on the EV kit board. The kit can be used to evaluate the MAX5180, MAX5182, MAX5185, MAX5186, MAX5188, MAX5189, or MAX5191 with minor component changes.
