Topic: Newbie: Help me 3-5 v step-up (Read 410 times) previous topic - next topic



I have some different projects going on, and on one i have a microchip and a ultrasonic range detector. The chip takes 3v and the sensor 5. I want to power the entire circuit with a 3v lipo ion battery. Small and powerfull.

So how can i step up the 3v to a 5v for the sensor?
Thanks tyler!

You could buy a 'boost' (aka step-up) converter. Or.... you could go the other way, and have 5 V as a main supply and use a 'buck' (aka step-down) converter.

Just make sure your converter is able to supply the amount of power that you need it to supply.
