Introduction to Boost Converters [video]

Great video by Jeff Feddersen about the ins and outs of boost converters. He writes:

Boost converters (or step-up converters) are in a class of circuits called DC-DC conversion circuits. These can operate more efficiently than linear regulators like the 7805, and unlike linears they can be designed to have a higher output voltage than their input voltage – potentially useful for low-voltage sources like some steppers.
