Evaluation Kit for the MAX2370

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2370 evaluation kit (EV kit) simplifies the testing and evaluation of the MAX2370 quadrature transmitter. The EV kit provides 50Ω SMA connectors for all RF inputs and outputs. A varactor-based tank circuit is provided for the on-chip IF 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 MAX2370 I/Q modulator, IF VGA, RF upconverter, IF VCO, dual synthesizer, 3-wire programming interface, and power-management features.
