Evaluation Kit for the MAX3264, MAX3265, MAX3268, MAX3269

Product Details

The MAX3264 evaluation kit (EV kit) (data rate up to 1.25Gbps) evaluates the MAX3264/MAX3268 limiting amplifiers. The MAX3265 EV kit (data rate up to 2.5Gbps) evaluates the MAX3265/MAX3269 limiting amplifiers.

These EV kits allow easy programming of the loss-of-signal (LOS) threshold and provide layout options for alternate termination configurations. The circuit includes space for a user-supplied preamplifier and photodiode pair mounted in a TO-46 can. Both EV kits have evaluation sites for a 16-pin TSSOP with electrical input, a 10-pin µMAX® with electrical input, and a 10-pin µMAX with optical input (not installed). See Figure 1 for an overview of possible configurations.
