Hardware development


The DS280DF810EVM allows for easy evaluation of the 28 Gbps retimer DS280DF810. Users are required to supply power and high speed traffic to the EVM via Huber+Suhner 1x8 MXP connectors. Huber+Suhner cables are not included.

Through the onboard USB2ANY connection and EVM software, users can evaluate (...)

  • Programmable via on board USB2ANY and EVM software
  • Supports data rates up to 28.4Gbps
  • EVM supports single supply (2.5V or 3.3V)
