Evaluation Kit for the MAX7033

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX7033 evaluation kit (EV kit) allows for a detailed evaluation of the MAX7033 superheterodyne receiver. It enables testing of the device's RF performance and requires no additional support circuitry. The RF input uses a 50Ω matching network and an SMA connector for convenient connection to test equipment. The EV kit can also directly interface to the user's embedded design for easy data decoding.

The MAX7033 EV kit comes in two versions: 315MHz and 433.92MHz. The passive components are optimized for these frequencies. These components can easily be changed to work at RF frequencies from 300MHz to 450MHz. In addition, the received data rate can be adjusted from 0 to 66kbps by changing three more components.

For easy implementation into the customer's design, the MAX7033 EV kit also features a proven PC board layout, which can be easily duplicated for quicker time to market. The EV kit Gerber files are available for download at
