Evaluation Kit for the MAX34565

Please check latest availability status for a specific part variant.


The MAX34565 evaluation kit (EV kit) simplifies evaluation of the MAX34565 12V hot-plug switch. The EV kit is shipped with a 15Ω current-limit resistor (R2) installed, but this value can be changed from 12Ω to 30Ω to match the application. The EV kit is also shipped with a Kelvin current-sense arrangement, but this can be changed to a direct current-sense arrangement by adding a 0Ω jumper in the R3 position.

Note: The PCB used for the MAX34565 EV kit also supports the MAX34564. The two devices share the same footprint. The PCB silkscreen shows the MAX34564, but if a white label exists on the top side of the PCB, the MAX34565, not the MAX34564, is mounted on the board.
