Product Details

The MAX152 evaluation kit (EV kit) is fully assembled, and provides a proven design and PC-board layout for fast, easy evaluation of the MAX152 at sample rates to 400ksps. An oscillator continuously triggers the converter, and an LED displays the conversion results. Jumpers allow various set-up configurations for the MAX152, and the board includes the low-current shutdown circuit shown in the data sheet. A 16-pin data connector provides easy interface between the MAX152 EV kit and the user's system.

The MAX152 EV kit can be used to evaluate the 5V MAX153 at sample rates to 1Msps.
