Evaluation Kit for the MAX3681

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX3681 evaluation kit (EV kit) simplifies evaluation of the MAX3681 622Mbps, SDH/SONET 1:4 deserializer. The EV kit requires only a single +3.3V supply and includes all the external components necessary to interface with 3.3V PECL and LVDS logic. The board can be connected directly to the output of a clock-and-data-recovery circuit (such as the MAX3675) and to the input of an LVDS device (such as an overhead termination circuit). A signal generator or stimulus system can be used with an oscilloscope, to evaluate the MAX3681's basic functionality.
