Product Details

The MAX96707/MAX96709 coax evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX96707 and MAX96709 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 MAX96707GTG+ or MAX96709GTG+ IC installed.

For complete GMSL evaluation using a standard FAKRA coax cable, order the MAX96707 or MAX96709 EV kit and a companion deserializer board (the MAX96706 EV kit is 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).
