tps65070 wLED boost
Can i use your wLED boost module as a simple DC-DC step-up converter (to have 12V)? What must be done for it?
I'm looking into this. In the meantime, please tell me how much output current you need at 12V?
Maximum current will be nearby 35 mA.
The TPS65070 non-synchronous wLED boost converter is configured as a constant current source. In your case, and as the case with most of the shelf boost converters, a constant voltage is desired. You could potentially, though this hasn't been tested, install a 12V zener diode where the LEDs would normally go and the ISET2 resistor for sufficient current for the zener to operate in breakdown ; you would then connect your load from the output ofthe boost to GND. I recommend evaluating this on the TPS65070EVM-430.
