General Description

The Boost Converter (BoostConv) component allows you to configure and control the PSoC boost converter hardware block. The boost converter enables input voltages that are lower than the desired system voltage to be boosted to the desired system voltage level. The converter uses an external inductor to convert the input voltage to the desired output voltage.
