Product Details

The MAX8663 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board that evaluates the MAX8663 power-management IC. The MAX8663 integrates two synchronous step-down regulators, four low-dropout linear regulators (LDOs), and a linear charger for a single-cell Li-ion (Li+)/Li-polymer battery. Maxim's Smart Power Selector™ (SPS) safely distributes power between an external power source (AC adapter, auto adapter, or USB source), battery, and the system load.
