Evaluation Kit for the MAX2232, MAX2233

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2232/MAX2233 evaluation kits (EV kits) simplify testing of the MAX2232/MAX2233 900MHz ISM-band, 24dBm RF power amplifiers (PAs). They allow testing of all device functions and require no additional support circuitry. Signal inputs and outputs use SMA connectors to facilitate the connection of RF test equipment. For evaluation of the PA with analog gain control, order the MAX2232EVKIT; for evaluation of the PA with 2-bit programmable gain control, order the MAX2233EVKIT.
