First Steps with the Arduino-UNO  | Maker, MakerED, Maker-Spaces, Coding | Useful Tips | DC/DC Converter



DC/DC Converter

Up from a certain moment when you get a bit more experience, you start more projects and sometimes you need to resolve a problem. One of those problems could be that you want to feed a project with a 9 Volts battery, accumulator, BUT you need 12 Volts or even more. AND sometimes also less than the 9 Volts. Here comes the need to use a DC/DC Converter. I found a very interesting one on Amazon (DE) for +/- 5€, so cheap investment. It comes even with a 3 digit LED display which shows the voltage which you can adjust through an adjustable trimmer potentiometer. There is also a push-button which allows to show the input voltage as well as the output voltage. No needs to solder, it is a full functional module. All you need is a small screwdriver to adjust the voltage on the potentiometer trimmer. Check out the photo below, please…




In above image you can see that the input voltage from the 9 Volts accumulator is at 7.3 Volts which STILL gets a 12 Volts output!! The current could be even on 2.5 Amp (max.) on the output which is a lot!!


Stay tuned for next blog posts and enjoy it 😉

Have FUN with your “LEARNing-By-Doing project” and try out ALSO the other examples 😉
