Status Explanations for product status codes

Active: In Production.


The MAX1711 evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates the high-power, dynamically adjustable notebook CPU application circuit with voltage positioning. Voltage positioning decreases CPU power consumption and reduces output capacitance requirements. This DC-DC converter steps down high-voltage batteries and/or AC adapters, generating a precision, low-voltage CPU core VCC rail.

The MAX1711 EV kit provides a digitally adjustable 0.925V to 2V output voltage from a 7V to 24V battery input range. It delivers sustained output current of 12A and 14.1A peaks, operating at a 550kHz switching frequency, and has superior line- and load-transient response. The MAX1711 EV kit is designed to accomplish output voltage transitions in a controlled amount of time with limited input surge current.

This EV kit is a fully assembled and tested circuit board.
