    Description

    The MAX1848 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board that contains a step-up switching-regulator current source powering three series-connected white LEDs. The circuit provides programmable LED current. The EV kit can be powered from a 2.6VDC to 5.5VDC source.

    The MAX1848 features programmable soft-start and LED brightness control. The MAX1848 EV kit demonstrates matching LED brightness with high converter efficiency (87%) to maximize battery life. Operation at 1.2MHz allows the use of tiny surface-mount components.
