Product Details

The MAX4188 evaluation kit (EV kit) simplifies evaluation of the MAX4188 triple, low-power, current-feedback amplifier. The MAX4188 amplifier is set to a gain of +2V/V. SMA connectors and 50Ω terminating resistors are included for 50Ω test equipment compatibility. For video test equipment compatibility, simply change the terminating resistors to 75Ω and change RF and RG resistors to the values shown in the MAX4188/MAX4189/MAX4190 data sheet.

The EV kit comes with the MAX4188 installed. To evaluate the MAX4189, order a free sample (MAX4189ESD), replace the MAX4188 with the MAX4189 on the EV board, and change the gain-setting and feedback resistors for unity gain as shown in the MAX4188/MAX4189/MAX4190 data sheet.
