The MAX8571 evaluation kit (EV kit) contains a fully assembled and tested circuit for evaluating the MAX8571 step-up converter. This circuit operates with 2.7V to 5.5V input supply and provides a regulated 18V output at up to 10mA. The output voltage is adjustable from VCC to 28V by changing resistors on the EV kit. The MAX8571 EV kit contains a second unpopulated circuit to accomodate a larger inductor and diode for the higher-current-limited MAX8574 and MAX8575. Either circuit can be used to evaluate any of the parts in the MAX8570 family.
