Product Details

The MAXM17516 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested PCB that demonstrates the typical 6A application circuit of the MAXM17516. The MAXM17516 is a fixed-frequency, integrated inductor, step-down power module for low-voltage, low-power applications.

The EV kit provides a 1.5V output voltage from a 2.4V to 5.5V input range and delivers up to 6A output current while achieving greater than 90.6% efficiency. The EV kit operates at 1MHz switching frequency and has superior line and load-transient response. The EV kit also allows the evaluation of other adjustable output voltages from 0.75V to 1.8V by changing resistors R1 and R2.
