Product Details

The MAX16929 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount PCB that provides the voltages and features required for automotive thin-film transistor (TFT), liquid-crystal display (LCD) applications. The EV kit includes one step-down and one step-up switching regulator, one positive gate and one negative gate voltage regulator, one 3.3V regulator controller with external npn transistor, and one positive and one negative charge pump.

The EV kit can operate from 4.5V to 28V input voltages and is optimized for automotive TFT-LCD applications. The step-down switching regulator is configured for a 5V output that provides at least 1.2A. The step-up switching regulator is configured for a 12V output that provides at least 500mA. The positive gate voltage regulator provides 18V output and the negative gate voltage regulator provides -6.2V.
