Evaluation Kit for the MAX2022

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2022 evaluation kit (EV kit) simplifies the evaluation of the MAX2022 direct upconversion (downconversion) quadrature modulator (demodulator) designed for UMTS/WCDMA, cdma2000®, DCS/PCS, and WiMAXSM base-station applications. It is fully assembled and tested at the factory. Standard 50Ω SMA connectors are included on the EV kit's input and output ports to allow quick and easy evaluation on the test bench using RF test equipment.

This document provides a list of test equipment required to evaluate the device, a straight-forward test procedure to verify functionality, a description of the EV kit circuit, the circuit schematic, a bill of materials (BOM) for the kit, and artwork for each layer of the PCB.
