Extend Battery Life By Implementing Soft Start

Certain boost converters, however, do contain a start-up block. When operating in boost mode, the input voltage is below the required voltage, and the converter’s output operates as the power supply. In this case, implementing soft-start is more complicated, because the routine must limit the current throughout the whole start-up process until the required output voltage is reached. This means that the soft-start mechanism must operate across both the battery power supply and the converter output.
