Title

Design and Development of Very High Frequency Resonant DC-DC Boost Converters

Abstract

This paper presents a very high frequency dc-dc boost converter. This design features low voltage stress on the switch, high efficiency, and simple control. The low energy storage requirements provide a more effective integration. A proposed resonant gate driver provides variable duty cycle and possibility of the control of the converter at very high frequencies. A 60-MHz prototype of the proposed converter is designed and implemented. Experimental results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed control strategy.
