Product Details

The MAX17501A/MAX17501E evaluation kits (EV kits) provide proven designs to evaluate the MAX17501A/MAX17501E high-efficiency, high-voltage, synchronous step-down DC-DC converters. The EV kits use these devices to generate a fixed 3.3V, at load currents up to 500mA, from a 4.5V to 60V input supply. The MAX17501A supports a PFM control scheme with high light-load efficiency, while the MAX17501E features a forced-PWM control scheme that provides constant switching-frequency operation at all load and line conditions.
