Evaluation Kit for the MAX2374

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2374 evaluation kit (EV kit) simplifies the evaluation of the MAX2374 low-noise amplifier (LNA). It enables testing of the device's RF performance and requires no additional support circuitry. The signal input and output ports use SMA connectors to facilitate the connection of RF test equipment.

The MAX2374 EV kit is assembled with the MAX2374 and incorporates input and output matching components optimized for an RF frequency of 880MHz. All matching components may be changed to match RF frequencies from 750MHz to 1000MHz. Refer to Table 1 in the MAX2374 data sheet for the device's S-parameters to design matching networks at other frequencies.
