Product Details

The MAX96705/MAX96711 coax evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX96705 and MAX96711 high-bandwidth gigabit multimedia serial link (GMSL) serializers with spread spectrum and full-duplex control channel, through the use of a standard FAKRA coax or STP 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 device. The EV kit comes with either a MAX96705GTJ+ or MAX96711GTJ+ IC installed.

For complete GMSL evaluation using a standard FAKRA coax cable, order the MAX96705 or MAX96711 EV kit and a companion deserializer board (the MAX96706 or MAX96708 EV kit are referenced in this document). For testing with STP cable, also order the MAXCOAX2STPHSD adapter kit and refer to its data sheet. Only one adapter kit is required per link (connecting the serializer and deserializer boards).
