DC-DC Converter Features Highest Efficiency
Since the supply voltage of many battery powered applications is moving from 3 to 1.8 V, the AS1310 boost DC-DC converter was designed to be able to generate both; many competitive DC-DC converters are not able to do so. If the input voltage exceeds the output voltage, the device goes into a feed-through mode and the input is directly connected to the output voltage. The features and performance of the AS1310 boost DC-DC converter make it very well suited for single- and dual-cell powered devices, including blood glucose meters, remote controls, hearing aids, or any light-load application. The AS1310 DC-DC converter is an especially good fit for applications in which a lot of time is spent in an idle mode and therefore draws only a small current.
