Evaluation Kits for the MAX2828 and MAX2829

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX2828/MAX2829 evaluation kits (EV kits) simplify the testing of the MAX2828/MAX2829. The EV kits provide 50Ω SMA connectors for all RF and baseband inputs and outputs. Differential-to-single-ended and single-ended-to-differential line drivers are provided to convert the differential I/Q baseband inputs and outputs of the MAX2828/MAX2829 to single-ended ports.

The EV kits simplify evaluation of the receive and transmit performance in the corresponding 802.11x bands.
