The MAX18066 evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX18066 and MAX18166 highefficiency, 4A, step-down regulators with integrated switches. The EV kit is preset with the MAX18066 for 1.8V output at load currents up to 4A from a 4.5V to 16V input supply. The MAX18166 is pin-compatible with the MAX18066 and can be ordered for evaluation with this EV kit.
