Evaluation Kit for the MAX17606

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX17606 evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board that demonstrates an isolated 15W synchronous flyback DC-DC converter. The circuit uses the MAX17606 secondary synchronous rectifier driver in a 6-pin SOT23 package, as well as the MAX17597 peak current mode flyback controller in a 16-pin TQFN package.

The EV kit circuit is configured to deliver an isolated +5V output voltage and provides up to 3A of output current. The EV kit is programmed to operate at a 200kHz switching frequency. An optocoupler, along with the transformer, provides the galvanic isolation between input and output, up to 1875VRMS.
