The circuit described here would produce an output voltage having twice the magnitude of the input voltage. In this circuit, we are using 6 Volts as input supply [[wysiwyg_imageupload::]]and we are getting 12 volts as its output. It is based on the popularly used hex inverter CD4049 IC. This can be made with the help of single IC with few more components.CD4049 contains six inverter gates in one package as shown in diagram. In this, pin 3 is input and 2 is for output. For first gate similarly pin 5 is input and pin 4 is output for second gate similarly we have four more gates. Pin1 1 is for supply voltage and pin 8 is connected to ground. Pin 13 and 16 are unused.
Most of this project is circuit used for doubling the voltage uses the principle of charging and discharging the capacitor. The circuit described below is used to [[wysiwyg_imageupload::]]double the input DC power by using IC 555 timer with capacitors and diodes. This circuit is useful when higher voltage level is required from a single lower voltage power supply.This project is based on 555 timer wired in astable mode means it will produce a square wave at a frequency of 2KHz approx with the help of components R1,R2 and C1.When input power is supplied to the circuit an output is produced at PIN3 of IC1.
