Product Details

The MAX4211E evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that provides overpower circuit-breaker and fault protection using the MAX4211E power-monitoring IC. The EV kit demonstrates the programmable overpower monitoring feature with manual or microcontroller reset options of the MAX4211E. The MAX4211E controls an external p-channel high-side power MOSFET to provide overpower fault protection.

The MAX4211E EV kit's circuit overpower threshold is configured for 100W with a maximum input voltage of 20V and up to 5A of load current. This makes it suitable for circuit-breaker applications in notebooks and other portable power systems. The EV kit may be reconfigured for other power thresholds with a maximum load current of up to 10A.

The EV kit can also be used to evaluate other versions of the MAX4211 power-monitoring ICs.
