Product Details

The MAX19541/MAX19542 evaluation kits (EV kits) are fully assembled and tested printed-circuit boards (PCBs) that contain all the components necessary to evaluate the performance of the MAX19541 (125Msps) and MAX19541/MAX19542 (170Msps) 12-bit analog-to-digital converters (ADCs). The MAX19541/MAX19542 accept differential analog inputs; however, the EV kits generate this signal from a user-provided, single-ended signal source. The digital outputs produced by the ADC are CMOS compatible and can be easily captured with a user-provided, high-speed logic analyzer or dataacquisition system. The EV kits operate from 1.8V and 3.3V power supplies and include circuitry that generates a clock signal from a user-provided AC signal.
