Boost 8 Click is a compact add-on board that steps up the voltage from its input (supply) to its output (load). This board features the LT1945, a dual micropower DC/DC converter from Analog Devices. Each converter inside the LT1945 is designed with a 350mA current limit generating well-regulated positive and negative outputs of ±12V or ±24V, making the LT1945 ideal for various applications. In addition to the possibility of working with a 3.3V mikroBUS™ power rail, it also provides the opportunity of using an external power supply with a very low voltage of 2.7V. A current-limited, fixed-off-time control scheme conserves operating current, resulting in high efficiency over a broad range of load current.
This Click board™ is used to step up an input voltage to some higher level, required by a load, for various applications that require "split rail" operating voltages.

ABOUT CLICK BOARDS™
Click boards™ follow a modular prototyping add-on board standard invented by MIKROE, which revolutionizes the way users add new functionalities to development boards. Click boards™ enable design engineers to change peripherals easily, cutting months off development time. To enable hundreds of Click boards to be connected to the microcontroller or microprocessor, we have invented socket standard - mikroBUS™. This uniform connection interface allows you to connect any Click boards to a main board instantly. The company releases a new Click boards nearly every day at 10am, and many leading microcontroller companies including Microchip, NXP, Infineon, Dialog, STM, Analog Devices, Renesas and Toshiba now include the mikroBUS™ socket on their development boards.
MikroElektronika (MIKROE) is committed to changing the embedded electronics industry through the use of industry standard hardware and software solutions. In 2011, the company invented the mikroBUS™ development socket standard and the compact Click Boards that use the standard to dramatically cut development time. Now the company offers 1000+ Click Boards – ten times more than competitors - and the mikroBUS standard is included by leading microcontroller companies such as Microchip, Renesas and Toshiba on their development boards. SiBRAIN is MIKROE’s most recent standard, for MCU development add-on boards and sockets. MikroElektronika also makes the world’s widest range of compilers and additionally provides development environments, development boards, smart displays and programmers and debuggers.
