Product Details

The MAX8640 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit for evaluating the MAX8640 step-down DC-DC converter. The MAX8640 EV kit operates from a 2.7V to 4.9V supply and provides a 500mA output. The 1.8V/2MHz version of the MAX8640 comes installed in the EV kit, but the same board can be used to evaluate the other versions. The MAX8640 is available with factory preset output voltages ranging from 0.8V to 2.5V.
