The MAX8544 evaluation kit (EV kit) contains a fully assembled and tested circuit using the MAX8544 stepdown controller. The MAX8544 circuit is designed to operate from a 10.8V to 13.2V input and provide a 2.5V output at up to 15A. The EV kit contains a second circuit (not populated) for evaluating the MAX8543. By changing the appropriate external components, both circuits can be configured to operate with input voltages from 3V to 13.2V and provide an output that is adjustable from 0.8V to (0.9 x VIN).
