Evaluation Kit for the MAX2055

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2055 evaluation kit (EV kit) simplifies the evaluation of the MAX2055 high-linearity, digitally controlled, variable-gain analog-to-digital converter (ADC) driver/amplifier (DVGA). The EV kit is fully assembled and tested at the factory. Standard 50Ω SMA connectors are included on the EV kit for the input and output to allow quick and easy evaluation on the test bench.

This data sheet provides a list of equipment required to evaluate the device, a straightforward test procedure to verify functionality, a circuit schematic for the kit, a bill of materials (BOM) for the kit, and artwork for each layer of the PC board.
