## Make this Buck Converter Using Arduino

In this project we are going to step down 12v D.C to any D.C value between 2 and 11volts. The circuit which steps down the D.C voltage is known as buck converter. The output voltage or step down voltage needed is controlled using a potentiometer connected to arduino. By Ankit Negi INTRODUCTION TO CONVERTERS: There … Read moreMake this Buck Converter Using Arduino

## How Boost Converters Work

A boost converter (also called step-up converter) is a DC to DC converter circuit which is designed to convert an input DC voltage into an output DC voltage with a level that may be much higher than the input voltage level. However the process always conserves the relation P = I x V, which means … Read moreHow Boost Converters Work
