Product Details

The MAX774 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount printed circuit board that provides a regulated -5.0V output voltage from a +5.0V input source. It drives loads up to 1A with conversion efficiency greater than 80%.

Additional pads are provided on the board's solder side to accommodate external feedback resistors for setting different output voltages. The MAX774 EV kit can also be used to evaluate the MAX775 (-12V output) or MAX776 (-15V output).
