Evaluation Kit for the MAX9277/MAX9281

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX9277/MAX9281 coax evaluation kits (EV kit) provide a proven design to evaluate the MAX9277 and MAX9281 high-bandwidth gigabit multimedia serial link (GMSL) serializers 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 features of the device. The EV kit comes with a MAX9277GTM+ or MAX9281GTM+ installed.

For complete GMSL evaluation using a standard FAKRA coax cable, order the MAX9277 or MAX9281 coax EV kit and a companion deserializer board (MAX9276A or MAX9280A coax EV kit referenced in this document). For evaluating with STP cable, also order the MAXCOAX2STP-HSD adapter kit and refer to its data sheet. Only one adapter kit is required per link, connecting the serializer and deserializer (SerDes) boards.
