0.8A step-up DC/DC converters in a tiny package

main


Torex Semiconductor’s XC9141/XC9142 series of 0.8A step-up DC/DC converters come with an input–output disconnection function (load disconnection function) to prevent malfunctioning during standby, and for device functionality that enables power supply to RTC.

When the output voltage is 3.3V, the IC can start from an input voltage of 0.9V with a resistance load of 100Ω, enabling use in devices driven by one alkaline or nickel-hydrogen battery. The input voltage range is 0.65V to 6.0V, and the output voltage range can be set from 1.8V to 5.5V (accuracy ±2.0%) in steps of 0.1V. A switching frequency of 1.2MHz or 3.0MHz can be selected to match the application.

LTC7813 – IC cascades boost/buck controllers

7813

Linear Technology Corporation introduces the LTC7813, a dual output (boost + buck), low quiescent current synchronous DC/DC controller. When cascaded, its independent step-up (boost) and step-down (buck) controllers regulate the output voltage from an input voltage that can be above, below, or equal to the output voltage, including during an automotive load dump or cold crank. Unlike conventional single inductor buck-boost regulators, the LTC7813’s cascaded boost + buck solution provides fast transient response with continuous, non-pulsating input and output currents. It substantially reduces ripple voltage and EMI, ideal for automotive, industrial and high power battery operated systems.

5V to 12V Step Up DC-DC Converter

5V-to-12V-Step-up-converter-500x500

Step up DC-DC converter is based on LM2577-ADJ IC, this project provides 12V output using 5V input, maximum output load 800mA. The LM2577 are monolithic integrated circuits that provide all of the power and control functions for step-up (boost), fly back, and forward converter switching regulators. The device is available in three different output voltage versions: 12V, 15V, and adjustable.

Requiring a minimum number of external components, these regulators are cost effective, and simple to use. Listed in this data sheet are a family of standard inductors and fly back transformers designed to work with these switching regulators. Included on the chip is a 3.0A NPN switch and its associated protection circuitry, consisting of current and thermal limiting, and under voltage lockout. Other features include a 52 kHz fixed-frequency oscillator that requires no external components, a soft start mode to reduce in-rush current during start-up, and current mode control for improved rejection of input voltage and output load transients.

Features

  • Requires Few External Components
  • Input 5V DC
  • Output 12V DC
  • Output Load 800mA
  • Current-mode Operation for Improved Transient Response, Line Regulation, and Current Limit
  • 52 kHz Internal Oscillator
  • Soft-start Function Reduces In-rush Current During Start-up
  • Output Switch Protected by Current Limit, Under-voltage Lockout, and Thermal Shutdown
