The MAX3710 evaluation kit (EV kit) is an assembled demonstration board that provides electrical and optical evaluation of the MAX3710 125Mbps to 2.5Gbps integrated limiting amplifier/burst mode laser driver with dual-loop power control. The controlling software communicates with the EV kit through the USB port of the included card and provides simplified control of all functions of the MAX3710. The EV kit can be fully powered by the USB port, or the user can choose to power the MAX3710 by an external 3.3V supply while the USB port supplies the included HFRD46-1 USB daughter card. The laser connection on the EV board allows attachment of lasers in TO-header packages.
