Product Details

The MAX15162ATG evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board that contains all components necessary to evaluate the MAX15162ATG+/MAX15162AATG+ dual-channel circuit breaker IC for power amplifier system. The IC is in compact 24-pin, 4mm x 4mm TQFN package. The EV kit is powered from an 8V to 60V DC supply and can be configured as two independent single-channels or one parallel dual-channel circuit breaker. The EV kit provides multilevel overcurrentlimit protection and pin-strap programmable current-limit level up to 1.5A for each channel.

The EV kit demonstrates the full functionality of the MAX15162ATG+/MAX15162AATG+, such as IN-OUT short protection during startup, inrush current control, input undervoltage-lockout (UVLO), programmable overcurrent shutdown delay time and fast large overcurrent protection. The EV kit also features current monitoring/ reporting with ±3% accuracy (0.8~1.5A) on individual channel and overcurrent/overtemperature fault status indication.
