Evaluation Kit for the MAX2361, MAX2363, MAX2365

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2361 evaluation kit (EV kit) simplifies testing of the MAX2361/MAX2363/MAX2365. The EV kit provides 50Ω SMA connectors for all RF inputs and outputs. A varactor-based tank circuit is provided for the on-chip voltage-controlled oscillator (VCO) and phase locked with an on-chip PLL. I/Q baseband inputs come with standard BNC connectors.

The EV kit allows evaluation of the MAX2361/MAX2363/MAX2365s' I/Q modulator, IF VGA, RF upconverter, dual-band IF VCOs, dual synthesizer, 3-wire programming interface, and power-management features. The MAX2363W EV kit is for evaluation of the MAX2363 for single band WCDMA.
