Tripler Converts 5V to 15V


要約: This application note shows how to configure the MAX1683 to triple the input voltage for low-current applications while minimizing voltage drop.

A similar version of this article appeared in the August 17, 2000 issue of ECN magazine.
By configuring a charge-pump voltage doubler as a tripler, you can readily derive 15V from 5V. A 15V rail is useful for powering op amps, LCD-bias circuits, and other low-current applications.
The connections in Figure 1 configure the MAX1683 voltage doubler as a tripler. The no-load output voltage of the circuit is approximately 3VIN - 2VD, where VD is the voltage drop across one diode. Use Schottky diodes as shown to minimize VD and its effect on output voltage.
Figure 1. This circuit (almost) triples the input voltage for low-current applications.

Because the circuit's finite output impedance causes the output voltage to drop with load current (Figure 2), a practical limit for load current is approximately 30mA.
