Evaluation Kit for the MAX13256

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX13256 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested PCB that contains the MAX13256 10W isolated H-bridge DC-DC converter. The EV kit operates from an 8V to 36V DC power source and the on-board 1:1 turns-ratio transformer from HALO sets the output voltage range from 6.8V to 34.8V with a 300mA current limit.

The EV kit provides greater than 90% overall efficiency at +24V between 2.2W and up to 8.3W output power using an H-bridge DC-DC converter topology. Input-ripple current and radiated noise are minimized by the inherent balanced nature of the design with no interruption in the input current. Undervoltage lockout (UVLO), adjustable current limit, and thermal shutdown provide for a robust 10W isolated supply. The surface-mount transformer provides galvanic isolation with the output powered from a full-wave rectifier circuit, reducing the output-voltage ripple.

The EV kit circuit is configured as a full-wave rectifier, with an output voltage that follows the input voltage but is configurable for other topologies including a voltage doubler, bipolar outputs, half-wave rectification, and a push-pull rectifier.

Use HALO's TGMR-512V6LF transformer for 4:1 turns-ratio operation providing up to 1A load capability.

The device is available in a 10-pin (3mm x 3mm) TDFN package with an exposed pad.
