The MAX2320, MAX2321, MAX2322, MAX2324, MAX2326, MAX2327 evaluation kits (EV kits) simplify evaluation of these high-linearity, silicon germanium (SiGe), dual-band LNAs/mixers. They enable testing of the devices' RF performance and require no additional support circuitry. The signal inputs and outputs use SMA connectors to simplify the connection of RF test equipment.
The MAX2320/21/22/24/26/27 EV kits are assembled with an associated IC and incorporate input and output matching components optimized for the 869MHz to 894MHz cellular frequency band, 1930MHz to 1990MHz PCS frequency band, 210MHz digital mixer output frequency, and 110MHz FM mixer output frequency. All matching components may be changed to work at other frequencies within the bands specified in the MAX2320/21/22/24/26/27 data sheet.
