Boost (step-up)

Efficient conversion of an input voltage to a higher output voltage

High efficiency, broad portfolio

Our extensive step-up regulator portfolio includes synchronous and nonsynchronous devices that address applications ranging from milliamps up to 100 A with efficiencies as high as 96%. Our products include key features such as low quiescent current (IQ) for extended battery life, high power density for small-size and spread-spectrum technology for low EMI.
