    Description

    The MAX8720 evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates the high-power, dynamically adjustable notebook CPU applications circuit. This DC-DC converter steps down high-voltage batteries and/or AC adapters, generating a precision, low-voltage CPU core VCC rail.

    The MAX8720 EV kit provides a digitally adjustable 0.275V to 1.85V output voltage from a 7V to 24V battery input range. It delivers up to 15A output current. The EV kit operates at 300kHz switching frequency and has superior line- and load-transient response.

    The MAX8720 has independent four-level logic inputs for setting the suspend voltage (S0-S1). Precision slewrate control provides just-in-time arrival at the new DAC setting, minimizing surge currents to and from the battery.

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