Evaluation Kit for the MAX2366, MAX2367, MAX2368

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2366 evaluation kit (EV kit) simplifies testing of the MAX2366/MAX2367/MAX2368. 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 MAX2366/MAX2367/ MAX2368s' I/Q modulator, IF VGA, RF upconverter, dual-band IF VCOs, dual synthesizer, 3-wire programming interface, and power-management features.
