How to Apply DC-to-DC Step-Up (Boost) Regulators Successfully

Battery-powered systems often stack cells in series to achieve higher voltages, but this is not always possible due to a lack of space. Switching converters use an inductor’s magnetic field to alternately store energy and release it to the load at a different voltage. With low losses they are a good choice for high efficiency. Boost, or step-up converters—covered here—provide higher voltage.
