Evaluation Kit for the MAX608


The MAX608 evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a regulated 5V or adjustable output voltage from an input source as low as 1.8V. It drives loads up to 0.5A with greater than 80% conversion efficiency.

This EV kit is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board. Additional pads on the bottom of the board accommodate the external feedback resistors for setting different output voltages.
