Product Details

The MAX9736A evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested printed-circuit board (PCB) that configures the MAX9736A Class D amplifier to drive 2 x 15W into a pair of 8Ω speakers in stereo mode, or 1 x 30W into a 4Ω speaker in mono mode for audio applications. The EV kit operates from an 8V to 28V DC power supply and is configured for +17.1dB gain. The MAX9736A EV kit accepts a pair of single-ended input signals and provides two sets of differential outputs for speakers.

The MAX9736A EV kit provides an option to control the shutdown, mute, modulation scheme, and mono mode of the MAX9736A. The EV kit includes convenient audio input and output connectors and the required output filters to ease evaluation. The MAX9736A EV kit can also evaluate the MAX9736B after IC replacement (U1).
