Evaluation Kit for the MAX25431

The MAX25431 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested application circuit for the MAX25431 current- mode buck-boost controller IC. The EV kit is designed to deliver up to 16A (max) input current with input voltages from 6V to 36V. The voltage quality can be monitored by observing the PGOOD signal.

The IC offers a 3V to 25V OUT programmable range. Switching frequency is adjustable from 220kHz to 2.2MHz, which allows for small external components, reduced output ripple, and guarantees no AM interference. The IC comes with a spread-spectrum frequency-modulation option designed to minimize EMI-radiated emissions and a SYNCOUT function that outputs 180 out-of-phase clock.
