Product Details

The MAX9657 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount PCB that evaluates the MAX9657 low-power quad video amplifier with input sync-tip clamps and fixed gain of 2V/V (6dB). It has a bandwidth of 15MHz, making it suitable not only for standard-definition video signals, but also video graphics array (VGA) signals with 640 x 480 resolution at up to 85Hz refresh rate. The EV kit features a shutdown mode to control the device operation. The EV kit operates from a single-supply voltage of 2.7V to 3.6V.

The MAX9657 EV kit can also be used to evaluate the MAX9658, which is similar to the MAX9657 except that it has integrated lowpass filters. To evaluate the MAX9658, request a free sample with the MAX9657 EV kit and replace U1 with the pin-compatible MAX9658 IC.
