Evaluation Kit for the MAX2163A and MAX2163AS

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2163A/MAX2163AS evaluation kits (EV kits) simplify the testing and evaluation of the MAX2163A/MAX2163AS one- and three-segment ISDB-T tuners. The EV kits are fully assembled and tested at the factory. Standard 50Ω SMA connectors are included on the EV kit for the inputs and outputs to allow quick and easy evaluation on the test bench.

This document provides a list of equipment required to evaluate the devices, a straightforward test procedure to verify functionality, a description of the EV kit circuits, the circuit schematics, a bill of materials (BOM) for the kits, and artwork for each layer of the PCB.
