Product Details

The MAX8614 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board. The EV kit contains the MAX8614B (0.8A/0.75A current limit), a dual-output, step-up DC-DC converter that generates an adjustable positive and an adjustable negative output. The EV kit accepts a 2.7V to 5.5V input and provides a +15V and -7.5V output at 1MHz fixed PWM operation.

The MAX8614 EV kit can also be used to evaluate the MAX8614A, a dual-output, step-up DC-DC converter that has a lower current limit (0.44A/0.33A).
