Description: The NCP1402 is a 3.3V DC-DC converter. The breakout board will accept voltage inputs between 1 and 3 Volts (such as 1 or 2 AA batteries) and output a constant, low ripple 3.3V output capable of sourcing up to 200 mA. This board is great for supplying power to 3.3V sensors or providing 3.3V from a a single AA battery.
The breakout board includes the necessary peripheral components. The input, output and ground pins are broken out on a 0.1" grid to allow easy access on a breadboard.
Based on 4 ratings:
These little boards are awesome for AAA and AA battery projects for small circuits. Very easy to use, and it works as advertised.
I picked up a couple of these to power some micro FPV systems I built using 600 line video cameras and 10mW 5.8GHz video transmitters and they work great. Even with brushed motors under load the video quality remains noise-free.
Tested with several loads and variable power supply – worked per specs. Good product.
This is the most useful kit for anyone who intends to design low power battery operated projects.
An advantageous amalgamation of size, function and performance.
