Evaluation Kit for the MAX3798

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX3798 evaluation kit (EV kit) is an assembled electrical demonstration board that provides easy computer-controlled evaluation of the MAX3798 multirate limiting amplifier and VCSEL driver. The included software communicates with the EV kit through the USB port and provides access to all the internal registers to optimize the MAX3798 functionality. A +3.3V supply and USB port powers the EV kit. SMA connectors are used for the high-speed inputs and outputs. An LED indicates the status of USB power.
