The MAX16962R evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board that evaluates the MAX16962R high-efficiency synchronous PWM step-down converter with integrated high-side and low-side switches. The EV kit output is configured to 3.3V and delivers up to 4A output current. The EV kit circuit operates at the IC’s internally set 2.2MHz switching frequency.
The EV kit is designed to operate from a single DC power supply that provides 3.5V to 5.5V and up to 4A for normal operation. However, the IC has a 2.7V to 5.5V input voltage range. The EV kit, shipped with a MAX16962RATEA/V+ in a 16-pin TQFN package with exposed pad, provides enhanced thermal dissipation.
