Step Up Regulator 12V @ 5 A VIN (MIN) 2.9V

These boost (step-up) voltage regulators generate higher output voltages from input voltages as low as 2.9 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 95%. The available output current is a function of the input voltage, output voltage, and efficiency, but the input current can typically be as high as 5 A. This regulator is available with a fixed 5 V, 6 V, 9 V, 12 V, or 24 V output.

The no-load quiescent current will typically be between 1 mA and 5 mA for most combinations of input and output voltages, though the combination of a very high output voltage and a very low input voltage (e.g. when boosting from 3 V in to 30 V out) can result in quiescent currents on the order of a few dozen milliamps. The ENABLE pin can be used to put the board in a low-power state that reduces the quiescent current to approximately 20 µA per volt on VIN.

This regulator has built-in reverse-voltage protection, over-current protection, thermal shutdown (which typically activates at 165°C), and an under-voltage lockout that causes the regulator to turn off when the input voltage is below 2.5 V (typical).

Quick Spec

  • Minimum operating voltage: 2.9 V
  • Maximum operating voltage: 12 V
  • Maximum input current: 5 A
  • Output voltage: 12 V
  • Reverse voltage protection: Yes
  • Maximum quiescent current: 8 mA (Typical worst case (i.e. with VIN at 3 V). Quiescent current depends on the input and output voltages and is much lower for most of the input voltage range. The ENABLE pin can be used to reduce the quiescent current to well under 1 mA.)
