Product Details

The MAX1846 evaluation kit (EV kit) contains both the MAX1846 and MAX1847. Both devices are inverting, current-mode, constant-frequency PWM controllers. The MAX1846 circuit is configured for a +12V input and a -5V output at 2A. The MAX1847 circuit is configured for a +3.3V input and a -12V output at 400mA. Each circuit is powered separately so there is no interaction between the two circuits. The MAX1846 is available in a 10-pin µMAX® package and the MAX1847 is available in a 16-pin QSOP package.

The MAX1846 EV kit is a fully assembled and tested surface-mount circuit board. With minimal modification, it can also be used to evaluate other output voltages.
