Evaluation Kit for the MAX20430

Product Details

The MAX20430 evaluation kit (EV Kit) is a fully assembled and tested application circuit for the MAX20430 high-efficiency four-output PMIC. The EV kit can test all outputs to full load within the normal operating input range of 3.5V to 36V. The IC features two modes of watchdog operation, challenge/response and simple windowed mode, which can also be disabled for simplified evaluation. I2C communication must be used to configure the MAX20430 and monitor errors. A PC-to-I2C interface (such as the MINIQUSB or MAX32625PICO) and software for reading and writing to I2C registers (such as SimpleI2C) may simplify testing.

Key Features

  • Integrated IC Minimizes Board Area and Layout

  • 2.1MHz Fixed-Frequency Switching with Spread-Spectrum Option
  • Status Monitoring through Active-Low RESET Pin and I2C Status Registers
  • Fully Assembled and Tested
  • Proven PCB Layout with Automotive-Grade Components

Applications/Uses

  • ADAS - Sensors
  • Low power clusters
  • Medium/Short Range Radar
