Step up converter circuit using TDA2822

This is a simple  step up converter circuit which can increase input voltage of 3-12 volts into 4.5-22 volts at current 1-300 mA. It use small audio amplifier IC as main and use principle doubler voltage 2 times with diode and capacitor only without coil or transformer. So this circuit is easy and cheap. I like them.

How does it work.

“DC to DC Step up converter” is one other the switching regulator, transform low voltage into high voltage by raise level the voltage output is 2 times. of input voltage.

They suitable for low voltage power supply. For example: Rechargeable battery of radio communication, car battery, others small size battery etc.

Which is voltage between 3-12 volts convert voltage to output about 4.5-22 volts. The Block diagram how to use DC to DC converter ability to supply to a circuit or Other electronic appliances Which can not meet the power supply requirements.

The simple principle of this circuit
As Figure 2 is perfectly simple DC to DC step up converter circuit of this project.
This circuit have the audio amplifier IC1-TDA2822 which We usually always use a small amplifier extends up to 2 watts. But this circuit is set as the astable multivibrator pulse generator to control on-off four diode switching (D1-D4) to transmission to charge and discharge at C10 to output. We will have voltage is nearly two times of input voltage, or as voltage drop across C10 with the input voltage there.

How to builds
This project use may use universal PCB or normal PCB as Figure 4 and assemble all parts on PCB as Figure 5 is components layout.

Figure 4 the real PCB that we use sorry if not clearly see.

Testing and Application.
We must to check this circuit for error.
Then to try a power supply to input point by voltage of 3-12 volts since it can use voltage in this range. Which at output will must be 2 times of input.

This project apply maximum current load of 300mA. And in while no load will pull current 6-8mA only. Application may use any battery between voltage of 3-12V to input of project. Then output is connected to any circuits that use voltage 4.5-22 volts and current about 300 mA.

I have a supper bright LED lamp that use 12 volts 1.5 watts only or 150mA but I have 6 volts battery only. As Video below. We cannot use them. Then I test it with this project. It cause voltage output is 11.8 volts. And I connect the LED lamp to output making it glow and have voltage 10.9 volts.

  1. I want to run three 30W LEDs or two 70W LEDs using 12V dc supply only.
    So i need to have 12V DC to 36V DC step up converter.
    Kindly provide the circuit design for my requirements.

  2. Has there any connection between pin 3 and 7 through 0.022uf capacitor, just like pin 1 and 5 are connected through 0.022uf capacitor?
    another question, Can I use 1N4148 instead of MBR150?

  3. Hi, owahid
    Thanks for your feedback.
    No, the 0.022uf not across between pin 3 and pin 7
    But c3 connected to pin 1 and 5 as Figure.
    Yes you can but low current you may use 1N4001 instead.

  4. is this is can be use as DC driver for 18w led driver

  5. is this circuit can be use for 18 w led panel or not

  6. Hi Ali,
    Maximum power current output is 100mA-300mA.

  7. How to make 5v with this d2822a ic ? Can it be increase?

  8. My power bank get problem, i want a circuit that will charge the battery and the charge in the battery to charge my Mphone

  9. i have a 24vdc/ 110/220vac 5000w rms/20000wpeak pure sine wave inverter. i wanted a 12vdc/110dc inverter, but got this one instead. I presently have six 12vdc 600cca amp marine batteries in a series /parallel formation powering the inverter. I want to parallel the six batteries at 12vdc and use a converter or a voltage doubler to make 24vdc, thereby having the output power of 12vdc batteries in parallel.
    Is there a converter/voltage doubler I can use to do this and what are the kind of specs are we talking about?

  10. Sir ,
    I want convert 3 vdc(2 AAA Cell ) to 24 vdc to operate realy .
    So pl provide me circuit diagram ,related components.

    With Thanq
