Evaluation Kit for the MAX1960, MAX1961, MAX1962

Product Details

The MAX1960 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that evaluates the MAX1960 family of PWM synchronous step-down controllers. There are two circuits on the board. The first has the MAX1960 installed but can also be used to evaluate the MAX1961. This circuit provides a 1.8V output at up to 15A, or the output can be adjusted from 0.8V to (0.9 x VIN). The second circuit evaluates the MAX1962. Components for the second circuit are not installed on the standard evaluation kit. Both circuits can operate with a 2.35V to 5.5V input voltage.

Key Features

  • 2.35V to 5.5V Input Supply Range
  • 1.8V Output at Up to 15A
  • Output Voltage Adjustable Down to 0.8V
  • Fixed-Frequency PWM Operation
  • Selectable 500kHz/1MHz or External Synchronization
  • ±4% Voltage Margining

Applications/Uses

  • ASIC, FPGA, DSP, and CPU Core and I/O Voltages
  • Cellular Base Stations
  • Server and Storage Systems
  • Telecom and Network Equipment
