The MAX96705A coax evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX96705A high-bandwidth gigabit multimedia serial link (GMSL) serializer with spread spectrum and full-duplex control channel, through the use of a standard FAKRA coax or STP cable. The EV kit also includes Windows Vista®- and Windows 7-compatible software that provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) for exercising features of the device.
For complete GMSL evaluation using a standard FAKRA coax cable, order the MAX96705A EV kit and a companion deserializer board (the MAX96706 or MAX96708 EV kit are referenced in this document). For testing with STP cable, also order the MAXCOAX2STPHSD adapter kit and refer to its data sheet. Only one adapter kit is required per link (connecting the serializer and deserializer boards).
Note: In the following sections, MAX96705, MAX96705A, and the term “serializer” refer to the MAX96705A ICs and MAX96706/08 and the term “deserializer” refer to the MAX96706 or MAX96708 ICs.
Note: This document applies to both coax and STP EV kits. This document covers coax cables, but the information provided applies equally to STP cables.
