Product Details

The MAX9513 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount printed circuit board (PCB) that contains a MAX9513 IC. The MAX9513 is a video filter amplifier with SmartSleep and bidirectional video support for standard-definition television (SDTV) applications. The filter's passband is 6.75MHz. The two amplifiers each have +6dB gain and can drive a 2VP-P video signal into two DC-coupled 150Ω loads to ground or one AC-coupled 150Ω load.

The MAX9513 EV kit can be configured to select between two sets of input signals: internal or external.

The EV kit provides a connector that supports bidirectional video signals. A sync-tip clamped input is also available for processing external signals.

The MAX9513 includes a SmartSleep feature that reduces the supply current when no video input signal is detected or when an output load is removed.

The EV kit has two video input signals, one DC-coupled and one AC-coupled. The video output signals from the EV kit can be DC- or AC-coupled. The MAX9513 video input terminals have a 75Ω termination resistor to ground and the output terminals have a 75Ω back termination resistor. The EV kit operates from a single 2.7V to 3.6VDC power supply.
