Product Details

The MAX5876/MAX5877/MAX5878 evaluation kits (EV kit) are fully assembled and tested printed circuit boards (PCBs) that contain all the components necessary to evaluate the performance of the MAX5876/MAX5877/MAX5878 digital-to-analog converters (DACs). The MAX5876 (12-bit)/MAX5877 (14-bit)/MAX5878 (16-bit) are 250Msps, dual DACs with interleaved LVDS inputs, integrated 1.2V voltage reference, and differential current outputs. The EV kits operate with LVDS-compatible digital data inputs, a single-ended clock input, and a 3.3V/1.8V dual power supply for simple board operation. The MAX5876/MAX5877/MAX5878 EV kits also contain an external 1.25V voltage-reference circuit that can be used to drive the MAX5876/MAX5877/MAX5878 input reference voltage pin.
