Product Details

The MAX1567 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested printed-circuit board (PCB) that accepts 2.8V to 4.2V input voltages and provides all the output voltages required for a typical digital still camera. The outputs consist of the main step-down output (3.3V), a step-down output (1.8V), a general-purpose 5V output, outputs for driving white LED backlighting, and outputs for charge-coupled device (CCD) and LCD bias. The EV kit comes with the MAX1567 installed, but can also be used to evaluate the MAX1566. For applications with a lower battery voltage, such as 2-AA battery applications, another version of the EV kit is available with the main output configured as a step-up converter (MAX1567SUMEVKIT).
