Evaluation Kit for the MAX8727


The MAX8727 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that contains a pulse-width-modulated (PWM) step-up DC-DC converter. The EV kit is configured to operate with a 1.2MHz switching frequency. It operates from a 2.6V to 5.5V DC supply voltage, is configured for a 15V output, and can provide 600mA with a 4.5V input.

The MAX8727 EV kit features low quiescent current and high conversion efficiency (90%). The high switching frequency allows for the use of small surface-mount components.
