Evaluation Kit for the MAX13171E, MAX13173E, and MAX13175E

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX13171E/MAX13173E/MAX13175E evaluation kit (EV kit) combines the MAX13171E multiprotocol clock/data transceiver, the MAX13173E control transceiver, and the MAX13175E cable terminator chips. This chipset forms a complete software-selectable multiprotocol data terminal equipment (DTE) or data communications equipment (DCE) interface port that supports the V.28 (RS-232), V.10 (RS-423) V.11 (RS-449/V.36, EIA-530, EIA-530A, and X.21), and V.35 protocols. Internal charge pumps allow the EV kit to operate off a single 3.3V to 5.5V supply.

The EV kit was designed to take advantage of the chipset's flow-through pinout. The EV kit includes a 40-pin header (logic signals), a female DB25 connector (protocol signals), three SMA connectors (high-speed logic signals), and scope-probe connectors for measuring the high-speed data signals (logic and protocol signals).
