The MAX1536 evaluation kit (EV kit) provides dynamically adjustable 1.5V/1.8V output voltages from a 3.0V to 5.5V input voltage source. It delivers up to 3.6A output current with up to 93% efficiency.
The MAX1536 EV kit includes the MAX1536 step-down switching regulator with an internal synchronous rectifier to increase efficiency and reduce the number of external components. The resistor-programmable fixedoff- time, current-mode architecture allows an optimum response to load-and-line transients. This EV kit, as configured, operates at approximately 570kHz and is optimized for 3.3V input and 1.8V output.
The EV kit is a fully assembled and tested circuit board. It also allows the evaluation of other output voltages in the 0.7V to VIN range.
