The MAX20014 is a high-efficiency three-output low-voltage DC-DC converter. OUT1 boosts the input supply up to 8.5V at up to 750mA, while two synchronous step-down converters operate from a 3.0V to 5.5V input voltage range and provides a 0.8V to 3.8V output voltage range at up to 3A. The boost converter achieves ±2% and the buck converters achieve ±1.5% output error over load, line, and temperature range.
The device features a 2.2MHz fixed-frequency pulse-width modulation (PWM) mode for better noise immunity and load transient response, and a pulse-frequency modulation mode (skip) for increased efficiency during light-load operation. The 2.2MHz frequency operation allows for the use of all-ceramic capacitors and minimizes external components footprint. The programmable spread-spectrum frequency modulation minimizes radiated electromagnetic emissions. Integrated low RDS(ON) switches improve efficiency at heavy loads and make the layout a much simpler task with respect to discrete solutions.
The device is offered with factory-preset output voltages or resistor-adjustable output voltages. Other features include soft-start, overcurrent, and overtemperature protections.

Product Lifecycle Production
At least one model within this product family is in production and available for purchase. The product is appropriate for new designs but newer alternatives may exist.
Evaluation Kits (1)
The MAX20014 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested PCB that demonstrates the MAX20014 power management IC (PMIC). The EV kit includes three highefficiency, low-voltage DC-DC converters: OUT1 boosts a 3.3V input to 5V at up to 500mA, while two synchronous step-down converters (OUT2, OUT3) provide adjustable output voltages down to 0.8V at up to 3A. The 2.2MHz switching-frequency operation allows for the use of allceramic capacitors and minimizes external components.
The EV kits feature three on/off jumper controls, and three reset outputs to indicate output status for each converter. It also provides SYNC input to select the operating mode (PWM, skip, or external synchronization).
