Boost 4 click
Boost 4 click carries the TPS61230A, a high efficiency fully integrated synchronous boost converter from Texas Instruments. The click is designed to run on a 3.3V power supply. Boost 4 click drives the target chip through the digi pot, which has SPI communication with the microcontroller on the system.
