Boost Converter: Basics, Working, Design & Operation

We’ve all come across pesky situations where we need a slightly higher voltage than our power supplies can provide. We need 12 volts, but have only a 9 volt battery. Or maybe we have a 3.3V supply when our chip needs 5V. That too, in most cases, the current draw is quite decent.

Eventually, we ask ourselves the question, is it possible to convert one DC voltage to another?

Lucky for us, the answer is yes. It is possible to convert one DC voltage to another, however the methods are a slightly on the clever side.
