PFM DC/DC converter offers wide input voltage range and high output voltage

October 01, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
Advanced Power Electronic's APE1910-HF-3 is a Pulse Frequency Modulation (PFM) DC/DC converter with a low quiescent current of around 30 µA and shutdown current less than 1 µA.

Available in a SOT-23-5 package, the APE1910-HF-3 features a wide input voltage range from 1.2V to 12V. It features a switching current limit (typ) of 350 mA, and a high output voltage of up to 34V. Using a PFM design, the product provides high efficiency across a broad range of loads. With a small package size and requiring only a small number of external components, the APE1910-HF-3 offers a low cost and space saving solution for step-up voltage conversion.
