Product Details

The MAXM17574 5V-output evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAXM17574 high-voltage, high-efficiency, synchronous step-down DC-DC converter. The EV kit is preset for 5V output at load currents up to 3A and features a 650kHz switching frequency for optimum efficiency and component size. The EV kit features an adjustable input undervoltage lockout, adjustable soft-start, open-drain active-low RESET signal, and external frequency synchronization. The MAXM17574 module data sheet provides a complete description of the part that should be read in conjunction with this data sheet prior to operating the EV kit. For full module features, benefits and parameters for the IC, refer to the MAXM17574 data sheet.
