App note: Tiny synchronous step-up converter design guide

Posted on Sunday, September 9th, 2012 in app notes by DP

Here is a design guide from Linear Technology describing how to design boost power supplies that can work from as little as 0.7 volts. These constant voltage power supplies that can run off until nearly every last drop of power is consumed.

    For a similar part, but far far cheaper, parts like the MCP1623 and MCP1640 are just as fun

  • Pekka Akselin: This is ridiculous!? :-) We are back at 256(!) byte EPROMs that needed multiple, a handful, of voltages to run! :-(
  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
  • Daniel: It's been a week and my comment is still awaiting moderation. Apparently the CIA doesn't want their involvement known?

  • Max: I have a suspicion the hefty electrolytic cap might be some sort of cargo cult carry-over from other RF-based projects - for instance, I've seen...
