Evaluation Kit for the MAX3514, MAX3516, MAX3517

Product Details

The MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 evaluation kits (EV kits) simplify evaluation of the MAX3514/MAX3516/MAX3517 CATV upstream amplifiers. Each kit includes a data interface that can be programmed through the parallel port of a standard PC. Software (Windows® 95/98 compatible) is included to facilitate this function. This software allows the user to program both the gain and transmit modes through a simple user interface.

Access to the device input and output is provided through 50Ω SMA connectors. The input is matched to 50Ω, while the output circuit includes a minimum-loss pad that presents a 75Ω load to the output transformer when using 50Ω test equipment.

Key Features

  • +5V Single-Supply Operation
  • Output Level Range up to 64dBmV (QPSK)
  • Gain Programmable in 0.5dB Steps
  • Transmit-Disable Mode
  • Shutdown Mode
  • Control Software Included
  • Fully Assembled and Tested Surface-Mount Board

Applications/Uses

  • Digital Television (Receivers, Set-Top Boxes)
  • Parametric Family: Cable Modems
