Product Details

The MAX8620Y evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested printed-circuit board (PCB) that evaluates the MAX8620Y power-management IC. The MAX8620Y IC features a 500mA adjustable step-down DC-DC converter, two 300mA low-dropout linear regulators (LDOs), and a reset function.

The MAX8620Y EV kit is configured to operate over a 2.7V to 5.5V input range. The MAX8620Y EV kit stepdown converter's output voltage is configured for 1.8V at 500mA, and the two LDOs can be configured through jumpers to nine different output voltages in the 1.8V to 3.3V range. This makes the MAX8620Y suitable for DSP or microprocessor (µP) power-management applications in handsets, PDAs, smartphones, and other portable applications.
