Evaluation Kit for the MAX2306, MAX2308, MAX2309

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2306/MAX2308/MAX2309 evaluation kits (EV kits) simplify testing of the MAX2306/MAX2308/ MAX2309 IF receivers. These kits allow evaluation of the devices' variable-gain amplifier (VGA), I/Q demodulator, dual-band voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs), synthesizer, 3-wire programming interface, and power-management features.

The EV kits provide 50Ω SMA connectors for all signal inputs and outputs. A varactor-based tank circuit is provided for the on-chip VCO and can be tuned by a potentiometer or an external voltage or phase-locked with the on-chip phase-locked loop (PLL).
