Voltage Regulators

Subcategories

Buck-boost and SEPIC converters work with input voltages that are higher than, equal to, or lower than the regulated output voltage, making them especially well-suited for battery-powered applications in which the battery voltage begins above the desired output voltage and drops below the target as the battery discharges.

Boost converters generate a regulated output voltage that is higher than the input voltage.

Switching buck converters reduce an input voltage to a lower, regulated voltage much more efficiently than linear regulators.
