Description

MAX2029 evaluation kit (EV kit) simplifies the evaluation of the MAX2029 815MHz to 1000MHz RF frequency range, GSM/cellular base-station transmitter, or receiver application MAX2029 upconversion/downconversion mixer. 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.

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 images for each layer of the PC board.
