The MAX9150 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board that simplifies the evaluation of the MAX9150 400Mbps, 10-port low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) repeater. The MAX9150 accepts an LVDS signal and repeats it on 10 outputs. Output levels are LVDS into a double-terminated bus (100Ω at each end of the differential bus for a total 50Ω load). The EV kit contains two independent circuits, each with a MAX9150 repeater, that can be linked using various media or tested independently. The outputs can be sampled through SMA connectors or category-5 twisted-wire pair. The two circuits on the EV kit require +3.3V power supplies to operate.
