Product Details

The MAX5976B evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX5976B hot-swap controller with an integrated 7A MOSFET. The EV kit is configured to pass 7A into a 2.7V to 18V hot-swap application, thus providing a fully integrated solution. The EV kit uses the MAX5976BETE+ in a 5mm x 5mm x 0.8mm, 16-pin TQFN package on a proven four-layer PCB design.

The EV kit can also be used to evaluate the MAX5976A after IC replacement of U1.
