The EV kit is designed for applications that implement the telephone interface using subscriber line interface circuit (SLIC) ICs, such as the AM79R79 from AMD and comparable products from Lucent, Harris, and other vendors. Its design feeds back the -24V output, achieving tight regulation for clean voice-signal transmission. An economical, off-the-shelf, surface-mount transformer reduces system cost and size. Compact design conserves board area. High efficiency and reduced quiescent current make this design the optimal solution for green PC and portable designs.
The MAX774 IRG EV kit can also be used to evaluate the MAX775/MAX776. It has a layout that allows modification for -48V output operation as well as adaptation for lower-voltage European applications.
