Hi there

I want to design and build a DCtoDC converter to boost 12V to about 20V. I am a bit rusty with my basic electronics, could anyone help or suggest a circuit. Also, it would be great if the output is slightly variable.

Is there a IC that i can use or a circuit floating around somewhere? The output need not be 100% stable. I want to stay away from coml;icated circuits, a basic one will more than do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Willem

dc dc converter 12v datasheet

Hi,

Maybe this will work if the current is high enough. It is possible to add a regulator to the output if the voltage is too high.
