Product Details

The MAX9291/MAX9293 evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX9291/MAX9293 HDMI input with high-bandwidth gigabit multimedia serial link (GMSL) output serializer with spread spectrum and full-duplex control channel with the use of a standard FAKRA coaxial cable. The EV kit also includes Windows Vista® - and Windows® 7-compatible software that provides a simple graphical user interface (GUI) for exercising features of the serializers. The EV kit comes with a MAX9291 or MAX9293 IC installed.

For complete GMSL evaluation using a standard FAKRA coax cable, order the MAX9291/MAX9293 coax EV kit and a companion serializer board (MAX9276A/MAX9280A coax EV kit referenced in this document). For testing with STP cable, also order the MAXCOAX2STP-HSD adapter kit. Only one adapter kit is needed per link (connecting the serializer and deserializer boards).
