Evaluation Kit for the MAX16930 and MAX16931

Product Details

The MAX16930 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested application circuit for the MAX16930 high-voltage, dual synchronous step-down controller with preboost. The EV kit is set up to provide 5V and 3.3V from an input voltage ranging from 3.5V to 36V (without preboost). The preboost circuit maintains the 10V supply rail for input voltages below 10V. Each buck rail can deliver up to 5A load current. Various jumpers are provided to help evaluate features of the MAX16930 IC.

Key Features

  • Dual, Synchronous Step-Down Controllers Operate at 180° Out-of-Phase to Reduce Switching Noise
  • Preboost Controller to Maintain Operation with Low Supply Voltage
  • 3.5V to 36V Wide Input Supply Range
  • Buck Output Voltage: 5V and 3.3V Fixed or Adjustable Between 1V and 10V
  • Current-Mode Controllers with Forced-PWM and Skip Modes
  • Resistor-Programmable Frequency Between 1MHz and 2.2MHz
  • Frequency Synchronization Input
  • Independent Enable Inputs
  • Voltage Monitoring PGOOD_ Outputs
  • Fully Assembled and Tested

Applications/Uses

  • Distributed DC Power Systems
  • Navigation and Radio Head Units
  • POL Applications for Automotive Power
