Product Details

The MAX1217/MAX1218/MAX1219 evaluation kits (EV kits) are fully assembled and tested circuit boards that contain all the components necessary to evaluate the performance of the MAX1217/MAX1218/MAX1219 dual, 12-bit, 125Msps/170Msps/210Msps analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). These ADCs accept differential analog inputs, which the EV kit generates from user-provided single-ended input sources. The digital outputs produced by the ADC can be easily sampled using a high-speed logic analyzer or data-acquisition system. The EV kit operates from 1.8V/3.3V power supplies and includes circuitry that generates a differential clock signal from a single-ended AC source provided by the user.
