  • Product Details

    The MAX1896 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that contains a fixed-frequency 1.4MHz, pulse-width-modulated (PWM), step-up DC-DC converter. The EV kit provides a 12.0V output voltage from a 2.5V to 5.5V input source. It delivers up to 100mA output current.

    The EV kit provides low quiescent current and high efficiency. It can also be used to evaluate other output voltages from VIN voltage up to 13.0V by changing the feedback resistors, R1 and R2.
