The MAX2080XXEVKIT# family of evaluation kits (EV kits) serve as a reference platform for evaluating the MAX20800 and MAX20801 maximum power point tracking (MPPT) ICs. These single-chip, integrated switching regulators provide an extremely compact, low cost, highly efficient, fast, accurate and reliable power delivery solution for photovoltaic (PV) modules. Refer to the MAX20800 and MAX20801 IC data sheets for more information.
The EV kit comprises a fully-assembled and tested PCB implementation of the MAX20800. Input and output connectors for three photovoltaic cell strings are included for flexibility and ease-of-use with standard 60 or 72-cell crystalline PV modules.
