|This is the converter I build myself, which is more or less a reference design from the IC manufacturer's web site. It converts an input between 2.5 and 5 volts to a regulated 12 V output. It can provide 400 mA output current, maybe more; I haven't required this kind of current so I did not test for max capability. I designed the circuit board for minimum space. It measures 1 inch by 1 inch using a 2-sided PCB, which is 3/8ths of an inch thick when components are mounted both sides.
