Evaluation Kit for the MAX16833

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX16833 evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX16833 high-voltage HB LED driver with integrated high-side current sense. The EV kit is set up for boost and buck-boost configurations and operates from a 5V to 18V DC supply voltage. The EV kit is configured to deliver up to 1A to one string of LEDs. The total voltage of the string can vary from 3V to 36V. The anode of the LED string should be connected to the LED+ terminal. The cathode of the LED string can be connected either to the PGND (boost mode) or LED- (buck-boost mode) terminal. In the case of the boost mode, the input voltage should not exceed the LED string voltage.

The EV kit PCB comes with a MAX16833AUE+ installed, which is the frequency-dithering version. The EV kit also comes with the pin-compatible MAX16833BAUE+, which is the reference-voltage output version.
