Evaluation Kit for the MAX16812

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX16812 evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates the MAX16812 peak-current-mode PWM high-brightness LED (HBLED) driver IC. The MAX16812 EV kit is configured in a step-up/step-down topology with peak-current-mode and average LED current control for the external LEDs. The EV kit is capable of supplying stable LED output currents up to 360mA and operates at supply voltages between 7V and 28V. The maximum output voltage of the LED string can be up to 15V.

The MAX16812 EV kit features two different types of dimming controls, using either an analog linear input voltage or a digital PWM input signal to control the LEDs' brightness. This EV kit also has an undervoltage lockout (UVLO) feature that disables the EV kit and overvoltage protection to protect the EV kit under no-load conditions. The MAX16812 EV kit is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount printed-circuit board (PCB).
