Description

This MAX20754EVKIT8 evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates the MAX20754 PMBus™-compatible dual-output multiphase power-supply controller. The controller generates six pulse-width modulated (PWM) control signals, or “phases.” The MAX20754EVKIT8 EV kit is a single-output design, with all six phases assigned to one output. The output uses coupled inductor topologies. Coupled inductors reduce the effective inductor value and size without excessive ripple current, reducing required output capacitance, and improving transient response.

The EV kit also demonstrates the MAX20790 power-stage device; there are six MAX20790 devices, one per phase.
