MAX15015A Evaluation Kit

Product Details

The MAX15015A evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested PCB that evaluates the MAX15015A PWM/PFM step-down converter, which integrates a high-side switch and an LDO regulator. The MAX15015A EV kit operates over a wide input-voltage range of 4.5V to 40V and provides up to 1A at the 3.3V output. The LDO regulator provides up to 50mA at the preset 5V output. The MAX15015A features undervoltage lockout, overcurrent, and thermal-shutdown protection.

The MAX15015A normally operates as a PWM converter and automatically switches to PFM mode at light loads to improve efficiency. The MAX15015A switching frequency is preset to 500kHz and features a SYNC input to provide external frequency synchronization for sensitive applications. The EV kit provides PCB pads to evaluate the SYNC and ENABLE features of the MAX15015A. The EV kit board can also be used to evaluate the MAX15015B. The MAX15015A can operate over the automotive temperature range of -40°C to +125°C.
