The boost converter is used to “step-up” an input voltage to some higher level, required by a load.
This unique capability is achieved by storing energy in an inductor and releasing it to the load at a higher voltage.
A boost converter using a power MOSFET
XL6009 module is a non-isolated step-up boost voltage converter featuring adjustable output voltage, high efficiency.
It converts input voltage of 5-32V DC to an output voltage of 4-38V DC.
Wide input voltage 3V ~ 32V, optimum operating voltage range is 5 ~ 32V;
Wide Output voltage 5V ~ 35V;
Built-4A efficient MOSFET switches enable efficiency up to 94%; (LM2577 current is 3A)
High switching frequency 400KHz, can use a small-capacity filter capacitors that can achieve very good results.
The ripple smaller and smaller. (LM2577 frequency only 50KHz)
