Product Details

The MAX5885 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board that contains all the components necessary to evaluate the performance of the MAX5885 16-bit parallel input, 200Msps, current-output, digital-to-analog converter (DAC). The EV kit operates with CMOS-compatible data inputs, a single-ended clock input, and 3.3V power supplies for simple board operation.

The MAX5885 EV kit can also be used to evaluate the MAX5884 (14 bit) and the MAX5883 (12 bit).
