Evaluation Kit for the MAX9508 (MAX9508EVKIT) (MAX9508EVKIT)The MAX9508 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that contains a MAX9508 IC. The MAX9508 is a triple video reconstruction filter and quadruple amplifier for standard-definition television (SDTV) applications. The filter's passband is 6.75MHz. The four amplifiers each have a +6dB gain and can drive a 2VP-P video signal into two DC-coupled 150Ω loads to ground or one AC-coupled 150Ω load.
The MAX9508 EV kit can be configured to select between two sets of input signals: internal or external. The EV kit provides a connector that supports bidirectional video signals. A sync tip clamped input is also available for processing external signals.
The MAX9508 includes a SmartSleep feature that reduces the supply current when no video input signal is detected or when any output load is removed.
The video input signals on the EV kit are DC-coupled. The video output signals from the EV kit can be DC- or AC-coupled. The MAX9508 video input terminals have a 75Ω termination resistor to ground, and the output terminals have a 75Ω back termination resistor. The EV kit operates from a single 2.7V to 3.6V DC power supply. The MAX9508 EV kit can also evaluate the MAX9512.
