Product Details

The MAX8530/MAX8531 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that contains two separate low-dropout (LDO) regulator circuits. The left circuit utilizes a MAX8530 and is configured for outputs of 2.85V at 200mA and 2.60V at 150mA. The right circuit uses a low-noise MAX8531 and is configured for outputs of 2.85V at 200mA and 2.85V at 150mA.

The MAX8530/MAX8531 EV kit features on-board shutdown control and a jumper-selectable RESET-bar output voltage (MAX8530 only). Both circuits are separate from each other and do not share a common ground plane.
