Evaluation Kit for the MAX9930

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX9930 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount printed-circuit board (PCB) that evaluates the MAX9930 RF-detecting controller. The MAX9930 EV kit includes on-board shutdown control, as well as quasi-measurement mode circuitry to provide an easy method to evaluate the MAX9930. The RF input utilizes a 50Ω SMA connector for convenient connection to test equipment.

The MAX9930 EV kit comes with the MAX9930EUA+ installed, but can also be used to evaluate the MAX9931/MAX9932 RF-detecting controllers and the MAX9933 RF detector. To evaluate the MAX9931, MAX9932, or MAX9933, request a MAX9931EUA+, a MAX9932EUA+, or a MAX9933EUA+ free sample with the MAX9930 EV kit.
