Product Details

The MAX8546 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board that contains all the components necessary to evaluate the performance of the MAX8546 step-down DC-DC converter.

The EV kit comes with a MAX8546 IC installed. The EV kit's circuit is optimized for a 10V to 24V input range and 300kHz switching frequency, and delivers 2.5V at 6A to the output. To evaluate the MAX8545 or MAX8548, replace the IC with the desired part and refer to the MAX8545/MAX8546/MAX8548 data sheet to select the appropriate components for the EV kit.
