Product Details

The MAX8884 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested PCB that demonstrates the highly integrated MAX8884Y step-down DC-DC converter and dual, 300mA, low-dropout (LDO) linear regulator. The step-down output voltage is pin selectable between 1.2V and 1.8V and provides guaranteed output current of 700mA. Dual low-noise LDOs are also integrated in the MAX8884Y/MAX8884Z. The MAX8884 EV kit can also evaluate the MAX8884Z. To evaluate the MAX8884Z, order a free sample along with the EV kit.
