Product Details

The MAX8704 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that contains a MAX8704 low-voltage linear regulator for I/O supplies. The high-current, low-voltage linear regulator provides an adjustable or preset output voltage that can deliver up to 5A continuously. The EV kit requires an input voltage source of 1V to 5.5V and a low-power 5V bias supply.

The MAX8704 EV kit has an output current limit, which prevents damage to the linear regulator. The EV kit also includes an adjustable power limit to protect the external MOSFET from overheating. A power-good (PGOOD) output signal is also available to indicate loss of voltage regulation. The MAX8704 is available in a 10-pin µMAX® package.
