Product Details

The MAX1572 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board that evaluates the MAX1572 PWM step-down DC-DC converter. The circuit operates from 2.6V to 5.5V and has a fixed 1.5V output capable of delivering 800mA. It also provides an active-low RESET output. The EV kit can be used to evaluate other output voltage versions of the MAX1572 by replacing the IC.
