Abstract

The goal of this work was to design and test a functional proof of concept of a high frequency DC to DC boost converter. The scope of this work included the design, simulation, part selection, PCB layout, fabrication, and testing of the three major design blocks. The design uses a closed loop error amplifier circuit, a power stage, and a ramp waveform generator circuit. The switching frequency will be adjustable, with a maximum goal of 20MHz.
