  • Product Details

    The MAX16802B evaluation kit (EV kit) demonstrates a current-controlled, high-output-current LED driver based on the MAX16802B. This EV kit is capable of supplying stable output currents of up to 750mA, can run at supply voltages between 10.8V and 30V, and can operate at temperatures ranging from -40°C to +85°C.

    The MAX16802B EV kit features two different types of dimming controls using either a linear input voltage or a PWM input signal to control the LED brightness. This EV kit also has a UVLO feature to turn off the EV kit operation during low input supply voltage and an overvoltage protection to protect the EV kit under an open-LED condition. The MAX16802B EV kit is a fully assembled and tested board.

    Warning: Under severe fault or failure conditions, this EV kit may dissipate large amounts of power, which could result in the mechanical ejection of a component or of component debris at high velocity. Operate this EV kit with care to avoid possible personal injury.
