Hi All!

I have a +5V and I need a +15V generated from that +5V. This power supply is the USB port.

The currency is very low(Maximun 50mA).

It will be in 15V for 3 or 4 sec.

So, I need to generate 15V from 5V USB port.

Is that possible?

Thanks all!!!

Yes it is posible. and I made it for my pic programmer. Mc34063 used. Here is the calculator:

yes it is possible:
you can use MC34063 switching voltage regulator

usb 15v

Could you post you programmer schematic?

So I can how to do this boost converter.

Thanks you guys!

what about clamping the 5v.. not sure if its possible to draw 50 mA from the circuit, what do people think ?

there is a chip and easy 555 timer circuit can do this job search google for it

You can use a boost converter, such as the LT1615 from Linear Tech: www.linear.com/pc/productDetail.do?navId=H0,C1,C1003,C1042,C1031,C1061,P1775

or MAX8575 from Maxim www.maxim-ic.com/quick_view2.cfm/qv_pk/4369/ln/

The USB port can source up to 100mA, as per the USB specification.
Since the available input power is Pin=5V*100mA=500mW, your output current can only be Iout=Pout/Vout=Pin*η/Vout. Typically, η=0.9 for a boost (though it can be lower), so your maximum output current can only be Iout=500mW*0.9/15V=30mA. This is a best-case scenario. In reality, the input voltage will be lower than 5V, due to voltage drops in the USB cable and connectors. Therefore, an output current of about 25mA is a more realistic expectation.

Does that work for you?

You could use a switching regulator -- check out

for more information. You can enter in the details of your specifications and
it will suggest a part for you. You can use this as your starting point.

Best of luck,
