Evaluation Kit for the MAX3815A and MAX3816A

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX3815A evaluation kit (EV kit) is an assembled demonstration board that allows in-system evaluation of the MAX3815A TMDS® cable equalizer and the MAX3816A DDC extender. The input and output connections are made through Molex HDMI™ connectors for direct connection to HDMI cables.

The DDC signals SDA and SCL are assisted by the MAX3816A. Hot-plug detect, +5V, DDC/CEC ground, and CEC simply pass through the board.

Power is delivered to the board through an external wall-plug transformer, which is included with this EV kit.
