Evaluation Kit for the MAX2654, MAX2655, MAX2656

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2654/MAX2655/MAX2656 evaluation kits (EV kits) simplify evaluation of the MAX2654/MAX2655/ MAX2656 low-noise amplifiers (LNAs). These kits enable testing of the devices' performance and require no additional support circuitry. The signal input and output use SMA connectors to facilitate connection of RF test equipment.

The MAX2654/MAX2655/MAX2656 EV kits are fully assembled with the MAX2654/MAX2655/MAX2656 on board, and incorporate input matching components optimized for specific frequency operation.
