Evaluation Kit for the MAX8608Y/MAX8608Z (MAX8608YEVKIT) (MAX8608YEVKIT)The MAX8608Y evaluation kit (EV kit) is a fully assembled and tested circuit board that evaluates the MAX8608Y step-up DC-DC converter, which provides two output connections for either white LED (WLED) drive or organic LED (OLED) power at up to 85% efficiency. The EV kit operates from a 2.7V to 5.5V input and is configured to drive six surface-mount WLEDs with an output current of 25mA, as well as provide a regulated 25V output voltage (at up to 40mA) for OLED power.
The MAX8608Y EV kit can also evaluate the MAX8608Z, which does not feature the temperature (TA) derating function. The TA derating function is offered only by the MAX8608Y. Either IC provides the flexibility of controlling LED brightness through an external analog or PWM dimming signal.
