Pololu 12V Step-Up Voltage Regulator for FPV camera
Handy little voltage Step up device (Actually it's tiny!) Perfect for boosting an ImmersionRC, Fatshark or TBS video transmitters 5V output to drive a 12V camera.
These boost (step-up) voltage regulators generate higher output voltages from input voltages as low as 2.5 V. They are switching regulators (also called switched-mode power supplies (SMPS) or DC-to-DC converters) and have a typical efficiency between 80% to 90%. The available output current is a function of the input voltage, output voltage, and efficiency (see Typical Efficiency and Output Current section below), but the input current can typically be as high as 1.4 A. This regulator is a fixed 12 V output:
input voltage: 2.5 V – 11.8V
12 V output with 4% accuracy
1.4 A switch allows for input currents up to 1.4 A
2 mA typical no-load quiescent current
integrated over-temperature shutoff
small size: 0.515″ × 0.32″ × 0.1″ (13 × 8 × 3 mm)
The boost regulator has three connections: input voltage (VIN), ground (GND), and output voltage (VOUT).
The input voltage, VIN, must be at least 2.5 V and should not exceed the output voltage,
The three connections are labeled on the back side of the PCB, and they are arranged with a 0.1″ spacing along the edge of the board for compatibility with solderless breadboards, connectors, and other prototyping arrangements that use a 0.1″ grid. You can solder wires directly to the board or solder in either the 3×1 straight male header strip or the 3×1 right-angle male header strip that is included.
