Components Direct offers a variety of synchronous boost (step-up) converters from Maxim and Micrel. These devices have a supply voltage ranging from 0.7V to 28V, and an output voltage ranging from 0.925V to 100V. The range of pulse-width modulation (PWM) is from 300kHz to 2MHz. Additional features include programmable soft start, stable with small size ceramic capacitors, output over-voltage and over-temperature protection and low input and output ripple. These quality synchronous boost (step-up) converters are designed for TV-tuners, broadband communications, TFT-LCD bias supplies, bias supply, positive output regulators, SEPIC converters, DSL applications, local boost regulators, and other applications.
