Product Details

The MAX7474 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested printed-circuit board (PCB) that configures the MAX7474 IC for automatically equalizing a baseband composite video input signal from low-cost, unshielded twisted pair (UTP) such as Category 5e (Cat 5e) cable.

The MAX7474 EV kit operates from a single 5V DC power supply. The EV kit accepts differential video input signals and provides a single-ended output. The EV kit features loss-of-sync and loss-of-burst outputs and also provides an option to set the video output signal's back-porch DC level.
