Product Details

The MAX8582 evaluation kit (EV kit) evaluates the MAX8582 1.5MHz pulse-width modulated (PWM) step-down DC-DC converter. The circuit is optimized for powering power amplifiers (PAs) in wireless applications. The MAX8582 EV kit output voltage is adjustable from 0.4V to VIN using the REFIN input and can deliver 600mA of load current in low-power mode. In high-power mode the output is shorted to the input by an internal MOSFET. The MAX8582 EV kit can also evaluate the MAX8581. To evaluate the MAX8581, order a free sample along with this EV kit.
