Basic Calculation of a Boost Converter's Power Stage (Rev. C)

 

This application note gives the equations to calculate the power stage of a boost converter built with an IC with integrated switch and operating in continuous conduction mode. It is not intended to give details on the functionality of a boost converter (see Reference 1) or how to compensate a converter. See the references at the end of this document if more detail is needed.
