Product Details

The MAX9517/MAX9524 evaluation kits (EV kits) are fully assembled and tested surface-mount PCBs that evaluate the MAX9517 and the MAX9524 ICs. Both ICs filter, amplify, and set the sync-tip level for standard-definition video signals.

The ICs feature an internal reconstruction filter that has 40dB attenuation at 27MHz, and ±1dB passband flatness at 7MHz. The MAX9517 and MAX9524 have a 2V/V gain and are capable of driving 75Ω to ground. The ICs feature two analog switches that are used to route audio, video, or digital signals.

Video signals are DC-coupled to the input of the MAX9517 and AC-coupled to the input of the MAX9524. The MAX9524 features an input sync-tip clamp to set the DC level for the video signal. The EV kits' input terminal has 75Ω termination to ground. The EV kits' output has a 75Ω back-termination resistor. The EV kits operate from a single 2.7V to 3.6V power supply.
