Evaluation Kit for the MAX3850

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX3850 evaluation kit (EV kit) is an assembled demonstration board that provides optical or electrical evaluation of the MAX3850.

The EV kit is composed of two independent electrically isolated sections on the PC board. The output of the electrical evaluation section is interfaced to an SMA connector, which can be connected to a 50Ω terminated oscilloscope. The output of the optical evaluation section is configured for attachment to a laser/monitor diode.
