说明 The MAX1778 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that contains a step-up switching regulator, two charge-pump voltage-regulator circuits, a VCOM buffer, and a low-drop out linear regulator (LDO). The step-up switching circuit is configured for a +8V output that provides up to 250mA of current from a +3.0V supply. The EV kit can be powered from a +2.7V to +5.5V supply.
The positive charge-pump circuit is configured for a +20V output that provides more than 10mA of current. The negative charge-pump circuit is configured for a -5V output and provides more than 20mA of current. Power for both charge-pump inputs is provided from the step-up switching regulator output.
The EV kit also features an LDO linear regulator circuit, which is configured for a +2.5V output that provides more than 200mA of current. Power for the LDO regulator circuit is provided from the input supply. The VCOM buffer provides a +4V output and more than 150mA of peak current. The step-up switching regulator output provides power to the VCOM buffer.
The MAX1778 EV kit demonstrates low quiescent current and high efficiency (over 91%). High-frequency operation (500kHz/1MHz) allows the use of tiny surface-mount components and fast transient response. The MAX1778 TSSOP package (1.1mm max) with low-profile external components allows this circuit to be less than 1.2mm in height. A built-in transient load tester facilitates transient load tests. The MAX1778 EV kit can also be used to evaluate the MAX1880, MAX1881, and MAX1882 ICs.
