    The MAXM17514 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested PCB that demonstrates the typical 4A application circuit of the MAXM17514. The device is a fixed-frequency, integrated inductor, step-down power module for low-voltage, low-power applications.

    The EV kit provides a 1.5V output voltage from a 2.4V to 5.5V input range and delivers up to 4A output current while achieving greater than 91.2% efficiency. The EV kit operates at 1MHz switching frequency and has superior line and load-transient response. The EV kit also allows the evaluation of other adjustable output voltages from 0.75V to 3.6V by changing resistors R1 and R2.

    The MAXM17514 is a fixed-frequency, step-down power module in a thermally-efficient system-in-package (SiP) package that operates from a 2.4V to 5.5V input supply voltage and supports output currents up to 4A. The device includes switch-mode power-supply controller, dual n-channel MOSFET power switches, a fully shielded inductor, as well as compensation components. The device supports 0.75V to 3.6V programmable output voltage. The high level of integration significantly reduces design complexity, manufacturing risks, and offers a true plug-and-play power-supply solution, reducing the time to market.
