Evaluation Kit for the MAX9271 and MAX9272 with FAKRA Coaxial Cable

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX9271 coax evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX9271 high-bandwidth gigabit multimedia serial link (GMSL) serializer with spread spectrum and full-duplex control channel with the use of a standard FAKRA coaxial cable. The EV kit also includes Windows XP®-, Windows Vista®-, and Windows® 7-compatible software that provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) for exercising the features of the device. The EV kit comes with a MAX9271GTJ/V+ installed.

For complete GMSL evaluation, order the MAX9271 coax or STP EV kit and its companion board, the MAX9272 coax or STP EV kit. Note: The GUI software is identical for both the coax and STP EV kits for the MAX9271, MAX9272, and MAX9273.

For evaluation using a standard FAKRA coaxial cable, order both the MAX9271 coax EV kit and its companion board, the MAX9272 coax EV kit.

For evaluation using a standard Rosenberger twisted-pair cable, order both the MAX9271 STP EV kit and its companion board, the MAX9272 STP EV kit.
