Product Details

The MAX1565 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board that accepts 1.5V to 3.6V input voltages and provides all the output voltages required for a typical digital still camera. The outputs consist of the main step-up output (3.35V), a step-down output (1.5V), a general-purpose 5V output, two outputs for charge-coupled device (CCD) and LCD bias, and an optional general-purpose output using the MAX1801 slave controller.
