Evaluation Kit for the MAX2700, MAX2701

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2700/MAX2701 evaluation kits (EV kits) simplify evaluation of the MAX2700/MAX2701 direct downconverter receivers. These kits allow evaluation of the devices' low-noise amplifier (LNA), I/Q demodulator, and variable gain amplifiers (VGAs). Figure 1 shows the MAX2700/MAX2701 EV kits schematic. The EV kits provide 50Ω SMA connectors for all RF input and output signals, and BNC connectors for all baseband input and output signals.
