Product Details

The MAX9601 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount PCB that evaluates the MAX9601 dual-channel PECL output comparators. It can be used to evaluate the MAX9601's performance in tracking high-fidelity narrow pulses, as well as conform its low-propagation delay and delay dispersion. The differential input stage accepts a wide range of signals in the common-mode range from (VEE + 3V) to (VCC - 2V). The outputs are complementary digital signals with external components necessary to observe the PECL serial-data output on a 50Ω input oscilloscope. The board also provides layout options that allow the output termination to be modified easily for alternate output terminations, such as +5V PECL and high impedance or AC-coupled level translation. The EV kit features test points to control the complementary latch-enable control inputs. The EV kit also provides resistor footprints to evaluate the MAX9601's adjustable hysteresis feature.
