The MAX4447 EV kit is fully assembled and tested. Follow these steps to verify board operation. Do not turn on the power supply until all connections are completed. 1) Connect a +5V power supply to the VCC pin and a -5V power supply to the VEE pin. Connect powersupply ground to the GND pads. 2) Ensure that the shunt is removed from jumper JU1. 3) Apply a signal of up to +1.5V peak to the SMA connector marked IN. 4) Connect the output marked OUT+ to a 50Ω terminated oscilloscope input, and connect the output marked OUT- to another 50Ω terminated oscilloscope input. 5) Turn on the power supply and verify the output signals on the oscilloscope. The output amplitude at either of the two outputs (VOUT+, VOUT-) observed on the oscilloscope will be the same as that on the input. This is due to the multiplication of the +2 gain with the voltage divider formed by the 49.9Ω back-terminating resistor (R3) and the oscilloscope input termination. Note that the differential output (defined as VOUT+ - VOUT-) will be twice the amplitude of the input. ________________________________________________________________ Maxim Integrated Products 1 For free samples & the latest literature: http://www.maxim-ic.com, or phone 1-800-998-8800.

Evaluates: MAX4447/MAX4448/MAX4449 General Description The MAX4447 evaluation kit (EV kit) simplifies evaluation of the MAX4447 high-speed differential line driver. The EV kit includes the MAX4447, which has a fixed gain of +2V/V, but it can also be used to evaluate the adjustable-gain MAX4448 (stable with a minimum gain of +2V/V) or the MAX4449 (stable with a minimum gain of +5V/V). To evaluate the MAX4448 or MAX4449, order a free sample of the MAX4448ESE or MAX4449ESE along with the MAX4447 EV kit. Evaluates: MAX4447/MAX4448/MAX4449 MAX4447 Evaluation Kit Detailed Description Evaluating the MAX4448 or MAX4449 To evaluate the MAX4448 or MAX4449, turn off the power to the EV kit. Replace the MAX4447 with a MAX4448ESE or MAX4449ESE, and install a gain-setting resistor RG (0805, 1%) according to the following formula: 300Ω RG = G / 2-1 Enable Control The MAX4447 provides an enable pin (EN) to enable or disable the output. Table 1 lists the options available for the enable/disable control jumper, JU1. EN is a TTL/ CMOS-logic level input. Layout Considerations The MAX4447 EV kit layout has been optimized for high-speed signals with careful attention given to grounding, power-supply bypassing, and signal-path layout. The small, surface-mount, ceramic bypass capacitors (C2, C4) have been placed as close to the MAX4447 supply pins as possible. Signal traces have been kept as short as possible by using 0805-sized termination and gain-set resistors. Note that the gain must be at least +2V/V for the MAX4448 and must be at least +5V/V for the MAX4449 for the amplifier to be stable. Table 1.
