Product Details

The MAX5889, MAX5890, and MAX5891 evaluation kits (EV kits) are each fully assembled and tested printed-circuit boards (PCBs) that contain all the components necessary to evaluate the performance of the MAX5889, MAX5890, and MAX5891 600Msps digital-to-analog converters (DACs). All three DACs feature LVDS inputs, integrated 1.2V bandgap voltage references, and differential current outputs. The three EV kits use the same PCB and components except for the DACs. The MAX5889, MAX5890, and MAX5891 are 12-bit, 14-bit, and 16-bit DACs, respectively. 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 EV kits feature differential current to single-ended voltage output conversion circuitry and offer an external 1.25V voltage reference that can be used to overdrive the integrated voltage reference.
