The product is useful in a wide range of applications and is small in size. It can be easily used in spaces without good ventilation at currents up to 2.5A. Careful! The output voltage must be at least 1.5V higher than the input voltage.
LTC3108 Ultra Low Voltage Step Up Converter (Input from 20 mV)
This compact (0.45″×0.6″) U1V11F5 switching step-up (or boost) voltage regulator efficiently generates 5 V from input voltages as low as 0.5 V. Unlike most boost regulators, the U1V11F5 offers a true shutdown option that turns off power to the load, and it automatically switches to a linear down-regulation mode when the input voltage exceeds the output....
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.
The product is a switching voltage source in boost type topology with a yield of up to 96%. This yields it to scatter very little energy and not to heat it until it is at full capacity. The source is very small and is useful in your projects where you want to power 5V circuits with single-cell batteries or accumulators.
The 5V Sparkfun Voltage Upright Module is ideal for supplying 5V sensors when used with a 3.3V expansion board or when you need 5V from AA batteries. See description for more details about the product. Add to cart now!
