Product Details

The MAX20096 evaluation kit (EV kit) provides a proven design to evaluate the MAX20096 dual-channel synchronous buck, high-brightness LED controller with and without SPI interface for high-power HB LED drivers. The EV kit is set up as a dual-buck LED driver and operates from a 4.5V to 65V DC supply voltage. The EV kit is configured to deliver up to 3A in each string of LEDs for both channels. The total voltage of the string can vary from 3V to 55V. The anode of the LED string should be connected to the LED+ terminal; the cathode should be connected to PGND.
