Evaluation Kit for the MAX2620

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2620 evaluation kit (EV kit) simplifies evaluation of the MAX2620 integrated oscillator with buffered outputs. It includes a varactor-based tank circuit that allows the VCO to tune across an approximately 30MHz band in the 900MHz frequency range. Outputs utilize 50Ω SMA connectors. The EV kit has a test port that facilitates complete characterization of the MAX2620 tank port, enabling resonators to be designed for frequency ranges other than that supplied with the EV kit.
