Description

The MAX8506 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that demonstrates the MAX8506 1MHz pulse-width-modulated (PWM) step-down DC-DC converter optimized for powering the power amplifier (PA) in wireless applications. The EV kit can dynamically control the output voltage in the 0.4V to VIN range from a 2.6V to 5.5V input. It can deliver 600mA of load current. The MAX8506 EV kit can also be used to evaluate the MAX8507, which has a different gain, and the MAX8508, whose output can be externally programmed for fixed 0.75V to 3.4V.
