The MAX4886 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount printed-circuit board (PCB) that contains two sub circuits, a typical 2:1 HDMI™ switch application (top half), and an eye diagram test circuit (bottom half).
The MAX4886 HDMI application circuit evaluates the MAX4886 high-speed HDMI/DVI™ 2:1 digital video switch, combined with the MAX4929E for lower frequency signals, to provide a full 2:1 HDMI application circuit. The EV kit operates from a 5V DC power supply and provides on-board 3.3V regulation. HDMI input/output connections are also provided to easily interface with HDMI-compatible devices. All signal traces in the HDMI application circuit are 100Ω differential controlled-impedance traces.
A separate test circuit is also provided at the bottom of the MAX4886 EV kit for eye diagram evaluation using SMA connections and 50Ω controlled-impedance traces.
