  • Product Details

    The MAX9500 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that contains a MAX9500 IC. The MAX9500 is a triple video-reconstruction filter and buffer for high-definition television (HDTV) applications. The filter's passband is 30MHz. The MAX9500 includes a +6dB output buffer capable of driving a 2VP-P video signal into a standard 150Ω load.

    The video input signals on the EV kit are DC-coupled. The video output signals from the EV kit can be AC- or DC-coupled. However, AC-coupling may degrade the tilt and droop quality of the video signal. The MAX9500 video input terminals are terminated at 75Ω, and the output terminals are 75Ω back terminated. The EV kit operates from a single 5V power supply. For dual-power-supply applications, use the MAX9501 EV kit.
