Maxim Integrated MAX77324 Evaluation Kit

Maxim Integrated’s MAX77324 Evaluation Kit supports the evaluation and design of high-efficiency step-down converters using the ultra-small MAX77324 buck converter. The MAX77324 can output up to 1.5A at 0.6V to 2V with ±2% voltage accuracy, and operates from a 2.5V to 4.8V supply with up to 93% conversion efficiency. The converter is packaged in a small 6-bump WLP and switches at 2MHz, allowing the use of a 0603 inductor and resulting in a total solution size of just 6.89mm2. The MAX77324 uses a constant-on-time PWM control scheme with an automatic SKIP mode for high light-load efficiency.

The evaluation kit provides a proven design with connection points for easy evaluation and high accuracy measurements, as well as a test point and jumper for the IC’s enable pin.
