Negatron DC-DC Converter
Negatron is a buck-boost converter that takes a positive
voltage and turns it into a negative voltage that you can use with
amplifier circuits and more. The output is adjustable from -1.3V to
-12V. Negatron is also able to step up/step down the magnitude of the
voltage. For example, you can feed Negatron +9V and it can give you a
-5V or a -12V rail.
Negatron is the perfect choice for engineers frustrated with trying to
create a negative voltage source in their low power circuit.
Negatron will operate from a 4V to 14V input and the output
voltage is set with the small screw potentiometer on the top.
Negatron is pin-compatible with the common 78XX series
of linear voltage regulators, so it will work with breadboards and
other popular prototyping methods.
Negatron is very different from any other DC-DC converter
on the market so please read the entire datasheet thoroughly before
buying or using one.
