Shrink & simplify designs with our DC/DC boost converters

Efficient, power-dense DC/DC step-up (boost) converters that meet a variety of power supply needs

Our portfolio of synchronous and non-synchronous DC/DC step-up converters features size-optimized, power-dense and low-IQ devices for a variety of power designs – from ultra-low power to 60 W or higher. With one or more integrated FETs and few off-chip components, our DC/DC boost converters offer a balance of flexibility and ease of use for your power design.

Alkaline or coin cell battery-powered applications

Maximize battery efficiency at minimal quiescent current to extend battery life.

Li-ion battery-powered applications

Speed response times to deliver high power while safely and reliably shrinking total solution size.

Ultra-low IQ products (300 nA to 5.5 µA)

Extend battery life and shelf life for low power mode and light load applications.

Featured DC/DC boost converter content

This application report describes how to design for very low APD bias voltage ripple in order to precisely measure various current condition levels.

This guide discusses how a good PCB layout is critical for the boost converter because it is sensitive to parasitic capacitance and inductance due to the switch-mode operation.

This article defines IQ and how it is measured, explains what IQ is not and how it should not be used, and gives design considerations on how to use IQ while avoiding common measurement errors.
