Product Details

The MAX770 evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a regulated 5V output voltage from a 3V input source. It drives loads up to 1A with greater than 80% conversion efficiency.

This EV kit is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board. Additional pads on the bottom of the board accommodate the external feedback resistors for setting different output voltages.

The MAX770 EV kit comes with a MAX770CSA IC, but it can also evaluate the 12V-output MAX771 or 15V-output MAX772-simply order a free sample of the MAX771CSA or MAX772CSA to substitute for the MAX770CSA.
