  • Buck-boost Converters
    Buck-boost converters can be used for either step-up or step-down conversions. They can also be used to reverse or invert voltage polarity. With buck-boost converters, the inverting regulator converts a DC input voltage to a DC output voltage that is opposite in polarity to the input. The negative
  • Buck-Boost LED Driver Using the PIC16F785 MCU
    This application note presents the design equations, schematics and source code for a 5.5W power LED driver using the PIC16F785 MCU. The application, as shown, can be connected to operate as a buck-boost converter or a boost converter. The PIC16F785 makes a great choice for this application because
  • Buck Boost vs. Buck Converter Battery Life for Portable 3.3V Micro Hard Disk Drive Applications
    drive voltage of. 3.3V, an obvious dilemma associated with this application is whether to use a low dropout DC/DC step-down. (buck) converter or a step-down/step-up (buck-boost) converter. A buck converter (Figure 1) provides the most efficient solution with the smallest external components
  • Forward Converters
    Forward, buck, or step-down converters are used to convert a higher DC input voltage to a lower DC output voltage of the same polarity. Forward converters are similar to buck-boost converters, but use a transformer to store energy and provide isolation between the input and output. The difference
  • Make a White LED Torch Using a Buck Converter
    and where a DC-DC boost or buck-boost converter. was required for a given illumination, you can now place a. DC-DC buck converter.
  • The Evolution of Switched Capacitor Backlight Drivers in Mobile Phones
    of drivers used for LED backlighting: inductive boost converters or charge pumps. To ensure equal brightness of each LED, designers either put all LEDs in series and drive them with a constant current boost converter, or use a switched capacitor charge pump with individual current control for each
  • Connecting LEDs: Serial vs. Parallel
    converter to create voltages higher and lower than the battery, depending on the state of charge. Connecting all LEDs in series requires a boost converter to create a voltage higher than the power source. In practice, series connected LEDs are powered from DC/DC inductive boost converters, whereas
  • Step-Up Switching Regulators
    When a low DC voltage source is used to power circuitry operating at high voltage levels, a step-up (boost) converter can be used. The input (lower voltage) is utilized to charge a passive component, such as a capacitor or inductor by the switching action of a transistor(s). Energy is stored
