Product Details

The MAX17007A evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates the standard 12A application circuit of the MAX17007A. This DC-DC converter steps down high-voltage batteries to generate low-voltage core or chipset/RAM bias supplies in notebook computers.

The default MAX17007A EV kit design provides two independent outputs (OUT1 and OUT2) from a 7V to 24V battery-input range. OUT1 is configured for a dynamic 1V/1.2V output voltage and OUT2 is configured to a preset 1.5V output voltage. Each output delivers at least 12A. The OUT1 and OUT2 outputs operate at 270kHz and 330kHz switching frequencies, respectively.
