Evaluation Kit for the MAX16841

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX16841 evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates the MAX16841 LED driver IC used for offline LED lighting applications. The EV kit is configured as a flyback topology to drive 6 to 8 LEDs from a universal AC input supply. The IC is designed for standard offline applications. The typical input power at 230V AC input is 11.7W.

The EV kit is designed to pass EM55015 Class B specifications and EN6100-3-2 for harmonic currents. The EV kit is dimmable with most of the leading- and trailing-edge dimmers.
