Evaluation Kit for MAX1564

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX1564 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that demonstrates the MAX1564 triple 1.2A USB switch. The EV kit operates from a +2.7V to +5.5V input power supply and is capable of sourcing up to 1.2A from each output. The MAX1564 features an adjustable current-limit and autorestart function for overload and short-circuit protection. A 20ms fault-blanking time prevents erroneous faults caused by load transients and capacitive loads. The MAX1564 is assembled in the space-saving 16-pin, 4mm x 4mm thin QFN package.
