Evaluation Kit for the MAX25410

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX25410 evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates Maxim’s automotive USB-PD port protector with integrated VCONN switch, host charger adapter emulation, system-level ESD, short-to-VBUS protection, and shortto- battery protection.

The EV kit is designed to be plugged into any USB 2.0 Type-C port, effectively providing a new fully protected Type-C port. The EV kit only requires one external powersupply source to operate. Protection is always maintained, whether or not the input supply is present.

The MAX25410 can be used to protect any USB 2.0 interface and USB-PD controller, but also provides a Type-C compliant 1W VCONN switch to power E-marked cables. Simply connect the VCONN enable input pins to a USBPD controller to evaluate MAX25410 in a given system. Additionally, MAX25410 automatic fault recovery enables a seamless user experience.

The MAX25410 also features integrated host-charger port-detection circuitry that adheres to the USB-IF BC1.2 battery-charging specification, Apple® iPod/iPhone/iPad and Samsung® 2.0A, and Chinese Telecommunication Industry Standard YD/T 1591-2009 charge emulation.

The EV kit is populated with a MAX25410AGTE/V+ (variant with active-low VCONN enable, auto-CDP and auto- DCP/Apple 2.4A host-charger emulation modes). Other variants can be used by simply replacing the IC on the EV kit.
