Product Details

The MAX5035 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount printed circuit board (PCB) that contains a step-down DC-DC switching-regulator circuit. The circuit utilizes a MAX5035 adjustable converter configured for a 5V output and provides up to 1A of current. The converter operates from a wide input range of 8V to 76V.

The MAX5035 MAXPower IC features a built-in high-side switch and an automatic pulse-skipping mode operation. The MAX5035 EV kit demonstrates low quiescent current and high efficiency up to 92%. The MAX5035 MAXPower IC switches at 125kHz.

Warning: The MAX5035 EV kit is designed to operate with high voltages. Dangerous voltages are present on this EV kit and on equipment connected to it. Users who power up this EV kit or power the sources connected to it must be careful to follow appropriate safety procedures when working with high-voltage electrical equipment.

Under severe fault or failure conditions, this EV kit may dissipate large amounts of power, which could result in the mechanical ejection of a component or of component debris at high velocity. Operate this EV kit with care to avoid possible personal injury.
