Product Details

The MAX16974 evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX16974 high-voltage, 2.2MHz, 2A automotive step-down controller with low operating current. It is designed to operate with 3.5V to 28V input voltages, while using only 35µA quiescent current at no load. The switching frequency is adjustable from 220kHz to 2.2MHz and the output voltage is pin selectable at 5V fixed or 1V to 10V adjustable. This EV kit is initially set up to operate at 2.2MHz with a 5V output.

The EV kit PCB comes with a MAX16974AUE/V+ installed.
