Description

The MAX16818 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount printed-circuit board (PCB) designed to evaluate the MAX16818 pulse-width modulation (PWM) LED driver controller in a buck-boost configuration.

The MAX16818 EV kit operates from a DC supply voltage of 6V to 28V. The EV kit's output is configured to deliver at least 1A of current into an 18V series LED string. The LED brightness can be dimmed using a digital PWM signal.

The EV kit provides an option to configure the MAX16818 IC's overvoltage protection, switching frequency, and frequency compensation. The MAX16818 EV kit also features a 180° out-of-phase clock output PCB pad.
