The MAX20743 is a fully integrated, highly efficient switching regulator with PMBus™ for applications operating from 4.5V to 16V and requiring up to 35A maximum load. This single-chip regulator provides extremely compact, high-efficiency power delivery solutions with high-precision output voltages and excellent transient response for networking, datacom and telecom equipment.
The IC offers a broad range of programmable features through either the PMBus or through a capacitor and resistor connected to a dedicated programming pin. Using this feature, the operation can be optimized for a specific application, reducing the component count and/or setting appropriate trade-offs between the regulator’s performance and system cost. Ease of programming enables using the same design for multiple applications.
The IC includes protection and telemetry features. Positive and negative cycle-by-cycle overcurrent protection and overtemperature protection ensure a rugged design. Input undervoltage lockout shuts down the device to prevent operation when the input voltage is out of specification. A status pin provides an output signal to show that the output voltage is within range and the system is regulating.

Evaluation Kits (1)
The MAX20743 Evaluation Kit (EV kit) serves as a reference platform for evaluating the MAX20743 voltage regulator IC. This single-chip, integrated switching regulator provides an extremely compact, low-cost, highly efficient, fast, accurate, and reliable power-delivery solution for emerging low output-voltage applications up to 35A. Refer to the MAX20743 IC data sheet for more information.
The EV kit consists of a fully assembled and tested PCB implementation of the MAX20743. Jumper pins, test points, and input/output connectors are included for flexibility and ease of use in a wide range of applications.
The evaluation board is configured with an “edge strip” to allow high di/dt loading when evaluating the system. The +VOUT connection is on the top side, while the return (or -VOUT) is on the bottom side, directly mirroring the topside strip.
Either solder directly to the output “strip” or use the J8 terminal block to interface to a load.
