The MAX1701 evaluation kit provides a regulated 3.3V output while operating on input voltages as low as 0.7V. The input may be a DC source or a 1 to 2-cell battery. Efficiency is up to 95% with output loads up to 200mA.
The kit, which uses surface-mount components, is fully assembled and tested for quick evaluation. Jumpers are provided to select the output voltage, switching mode, and shutdown control. This EV kit can also be used to evaluate the MAX1700. Simply order a free sample of the MAX1700EEE and replace the MAX1701EEE that comes installed on the board.
