Abstract

In order to make it easier for hobbyists to create small portable microcontroller based electronics projects, I have created Boosty-bit, a tiny DC-DC boost convert that runs off a single alkaline battery cell (AA or AAA). The Boosty-bit converter can source up to 250mA @ 3.3v, making it ideal for many microcontroller based projects. In addition to power management, Boosty-bit is also physically small, allowing it to fit inside pen/marker-sized enclosures along with a AAA battery and a microcontroller. Boosty-bit aims to be the ideal solution for “makers” who desire portability and compact form factors in their projects.
