Step-Up (Boost) Regulator
Operation
Figure 33 shows the LM2587 used as a step-up (boost)
regulator. This is a switching regulator that produces an
output voltage greater than the input supply voltage.
A brief explanation of how the LM2587 Boost Regulator
works is as follows (refer to Figure 33). When the NPN
switch turns on, the inductor current ramps up at the rate of
By adding a small number of external components (as shown in Figure 33), the LM2587 can be used to produce a regulated output voltage that is greater than
the applied input voltage. The switching waveforms observed during the operation of this circuit are shown in Figure 34. Typical performance of this regulator is
shown in Figure 35.
