Evaluation Kit for the MAX2244, MAX2245, MAX2246

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2244/MAX2246 evaluation kits (EV kits) simplify evaluation of the MAX2244/MAX2245/MAX2246 power amplifiers (PAs). They enable testing of the devices' RF performance and require no additional support circuitry. The EV kits' signal inputs and outputs use SMA connectors to facilitate the connection of RF test equipment.

The MAX2244 EV kit is assembled with a MAX2244 and incorporates output matching components optimized for 2.4GHz to 2.5GHz and approximately 22dBm output power. The MAX2246 EV kit is assembled with a MAX2246 and is matched on-board to provide approximately 20dBm in the 2.4GHz band.
