Product Details

The MAX15462C 12V evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board that demonstrates the performance of the MAX15462C 42V, 300mA ultra-small, high-efficiency, synchronous step-down converter. The EV kit operates over a wide input voltage range of 14V to 42V, and provides up to 300mA load current at 12V output voltage. The device features undervoltage lockout, overcurrent protection, and thermal shutdown. The EV kit switches at a frequency of 500kHz, and delivers a peak efficiency of 95% with the supplied components.

The EV kit comes installed with the MAX15462CATA+ in an 8-pin (2mm x 2mm) lead(Pb)-free/RoHS-compliant TDFN package.
