Evaluation Kit for the MAX17129 and MAX17149

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX17129 evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX17129 high-efficiency driver for white light-emitting diodes (WLEDs). The EV kit utilizes a step-up DC-DC converter to generate the voltage required to drive up to six strings of 10 surface-mount WLEDs. The EV kit uses a 3V to 26V input supply and can be configured to provide an adjustable 10mA to 45mA full-scale LED current.

Installed on the EV kit is the MAX17129ETE+. Contact the factory for free samples of the pin-compatible MAX17149ETE+.
