Simple Boost / Step-up DC-DC Converter Using the NCP1402

If you’ve read much of this blog, you’ll have noticed that something I like to do is test ideas on simple breakout boards before implementing them into larger projects.  If something goes wrong, I haven’t wasted a bunch of time/money on it.  And if something goes right, then I’ve got an example that I can keep around which will help next time I need to implement that particular part.  This post shows my breakout of the NCP1402 boost converter that takes inputs from 1-4V and outputs 5V at up to 200mA.
