The MAX1626/MAX1627 step-down DC-DC controllers operate over a 2.6V to 16.5V input voltage range. The controllers deliver load current from 1mA to more than 2A. The MAX1626 has pin-selectable 3.3V and 5V outputs. The MAX1627 supports adjustable outputs from 1.3V to 16V.

A unique current-limited, pulse-frequency-modulation (PFM) control scheme operates up to 100% duty cycle, resulting in very low dropout voltage. This control scheme eliminates minimum load requirements and reduces supply current under light loads to 90µA (versus 2mA to 10mA for common pulse-width modulation controllers).

The devices are available in a 8-pin SOIC package (-40°C to +85°C) and dice (0°C to +70°C).

Product Detail

The MAX1626 evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a selectable 3.3V or 5V output voltage. The MAX1626 has a high-switch duty cycle of up to 100%, allowing the external P-channel transistor to turn on fully. The 100% duty cycle and a low 100mV current-sense level permit very low dropout voltages. The circuit is configured to deliver up to 2A of output current with greater than 90% conversion efficiency.

This EV kit is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board. It can also be used to evaluate the MAX1627, which has an adjustable output voltage. Additional pads on the bottom of the board accommodate the external feedback resistors for setting different output voltages.
