Product Details

The MAX8660 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested PCB that accepts an input from 2.6V to 6.0V and provides the output voltages and power-management features used by applications processors. The MAX8660 integrates four step-down DC-DC regulators and four LDO linear regulators. Additional features include on/off control for outputs, low-battery detection, reset output, and a 2-wire I²C serial interface.

The MAX8660 evaluation system (EV system) includes a MAX8660 EV kit and a Maxim CMAXQUSB+ serial-interface board. The CMAXQUSB+ board connects to a PC's USB port and allows the transfer of I²C to the MAX8660 EV kit.

The MAX8660 EV kit comes with the MAX8660 installed, but can also be used to evaluate the MAX8660A, MAX8660B, and MAX8661.
