Reference Guide

Description

The MAXREFDES1284 Himalaya Power Evaluation Platform provides a proven design to evaluate 12 different high-efficiency, synchronous, step-down DC-DC converters. The reference design is preset for a 5V output for each converter. The platform also shows a typical solution size when using these DC-DC converter parts and compares an integrated circuit (IC) solution vs a module solution for each load current range. For more details on each part’s benefits and features, refer to their separate data sheet. To evaluate all the features offered by the parts, refer to their dedicated evaluation kit (EV kit).

Features

  • Operates from a single 8V to 60V Input Supply
  • 12 Programmed 5V Output Voltages
  • Output Currents up to 100mA, 300mA, 2A, 3A, 3.5A, 4A
  • Enable Jumpers
  • RESET Outputs
  • Proven PCB Layout
  • Fully Assembled and Tested
