Product Details

The MAX9507 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount printed-circuit board (PCB) that evaluates the MAX9507 DirectDrive™ video filter amplifier. The MAX9507 amplifies standard-definition video signals and sets the video black level near ground while consuming minimal power. The EV kit operates from a 1.7V to 2.625V single power supply and accepts an input video signal of up to 1VP-P. The EV kit includes an I²C/SMBus™-compatible interface, which provides software control of the video filter, analog switches, load detection, and other functions.

The MAX9507 evaluation system (EV system) consists of the MAX9507 EV kit and the Maxim CMAXQUSB+ command module. A Windows® 98/2000/XP-compatible software program is also available for use with the EV system and can be downloaded from www.maximintegrated.com/evkitsoftware.

The Maxim CMAXQUSB+ command module provides the I²C/SMBus interface and is connected to the computer through the universal serial bus (USB) port. The MAX9507 EV kit software provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for exercising the MAX9507 features.
