Build an Arduino boost converter

Build an Arduino boost converter

Lucas Reed has a tutorial on how to build a boost converter using an Arduino.

Have you ever needed to power a project that’s not near an outlet? Have you needed to test using different voltages? Are you curious about analog circuits and power? Using Autodesk Circuits and a lead-acid battery, you can create a circuit that will act as a variable power supply, outputting a range of voltages from 5V to 20V.


After creating the power supply you could drive motors using variable voltage, power microcontrollers, logic circuits, LED strings, analog circuits, and much more.

This is a good way to learn how basic electronic components can be put together, like a puzzle, to accomplish a task. It will also leave you with an awesome mobile power supply to test your projects with!
