General Description The MAX668 evaluation kit (EV kit) combines a con- stant-frequency, pulse-width-modulation (PWM) step- up controller with an external N-channel MOSFET and Schottky diode to provide a regulated output voltage. The EV kit accepts a +3V to VOUT input and converts it to a +12V output for currents up to 1A, with greater than 90% conversion efficiency. The EV kit operates at 500kHz, allowing the use of small external components. The MAX668 EV kit is a fully assembled and tested sur- face-mount circuit board. This EV kit can also be con- figured for the application circuits listed in the EV Kit Application Circuit Capabilities table. For input voltages below 3V and down to 1.8V, replace the MAX668 with a MAX669. The MAX669 must always operate in boot- strapped mode (JU2 shunt across pins 1 and 2).

_________________________Quick Start
The MAX668 EV kit is fully assembled and tested. Follow
these steps to verify board operation.
Do not turn on
the power supply until all connections are completed.
1)Place the shunt on JU1 across pins 1 and 2. Verify
that the shunt is across JU2 pins 2 and 3 (V
CC
is
tied to V
IN
) and JU3 is open (LDO is open).
2)Connect a +5V supply to the V
IN
pad. Connect
ground to the GND pad.
3)Connect a voltmeter to the V
OUT
pad.
4)Turn on the power supply and verify that the output
voltage is 12V.
_______________Detailed Description
The MAX668 EV kit provides a regulated +12V output
voltage from an input source as low as +3V. It drives
loads up to 1A with greater than 90% conversion effi-
ciency. This EV kit is shipped configured in the non-
bootstrapped mode (V
CC
is tied to V
IN
). However, there
are several methods of connecting V
CC
and LDO
depending on the specific design including input and
output voltage range, quiescent power dissipation,
MOSFET selection, and load.

If the minimum input voltage is below +3.0V, use the
MAX669 with V
CC
bootstrapped from V
OUT
(Table 1). In
bootstrapped mode, if V
OUT
is always less than +5.5V,
then LDO may be shorted to V
CC
to eliminate the
dropout voltage of the LDO regulator. This increases the
gate drive to the MOSFET, which lowers the MOSFET
on-resistance but increases the MAX668 supply current
due to gate-charge loss.
If V
IN
is greater than +3.0V, the MAX668’s V
CC
can be
powered from V
IN
. This will decrease quiescent power
dissipation, especially when V
OUT
is large. If V
IN
is
always less than +5.5V, LDO may be shorted to V
CC
to
eliminate the dropout voltage of the LDO regulator. If
V
IN
is in the range of +3V to +4.5V, then the user may
still want to bootstrap from V
OUT
to increase gate drive
to the MOSFET at the expense of power dissipation. If
V
IN
is always greater than +4.5V, the V
CC
input should
always be tied to V
IN
, since bootstrapping from V
OUT
will not increase the gate drive from LDO, but quiescent
power dissipation will rise. Jumpers JU2 and JU3 con-
trol the V
CC
and LDO inputs (see MAX668/MAX669
data sheet).
Jumper Selection
The 3-pin header JU1 selects shutdown mode. Table 1
lists the selectable jumper options. The 3-pin header
JU2 selects bootstrapped mode. Table 2 lists the
selectable jumper options. For V
CC
less than 5.5V, use
the 2-pin header JU3 to short LDO to V
CC
. This elimi-
nates the internal linear regulator (LDO) dropout volt-
age. For the MAX668, this allows operation with input
voltages down to 2.7V. Table 3 lists the selectable
jumper options.
Other Output Voltages
The MAX668 EV kit can also be used to evaluate other
output voltages. Refer to the Output Voltage Selection
section in the MAX668 data sheet for instructions on
selecting the feedback resistors R2 and R3.
For output
voltages greater than 15V, replace C5 (20V) with a
capacitor that has a higher voltage rating.
In addition to the standard EV kit configuration of 3V
IN
to 12V
OUT
at 1A, the EV Kit Application Circuit
Capabilitiestable listed several common Input/Output
combinations. Table 4 lists the components recom-
mended for these alternative circuits.
