HAPPY HOLIDAYS! WE WILL BE CLOSED FROM DEC 23 TO JAN 1.
5V 1.4A Boost Converter
The compact (0.32 0.515 ) U3V12F5 switching step-up (or boost) voltage regulator takes an input voltage as low as 2.5 V and efficiently boosts it to 5 V. The pins have a 0.1 spacing, making this board compatible with standard solderless breadboards and perfboards.
These boost (step-up) voltage regulators generate higher output voltages from input voltages as low as 2.5 V. They are switching regulators (also called switched-mode power supplies (SMPS) or DC-to-DC converters) and have a typical efficiency between 80% to 90%. The available output current is a function of the input voltage, output voltage, and efficiency (see Typical Efficiency and Output Current section below), but the input current can typically be as high as 1.4 A.
- Input Voltage: 2.5 to 5V
- Output Voltage: 5V
- Maximum Input Current: 1.4A
- Typical Efficiency: 80 to 90%
