Differences Between the Ćuk Converter and the Inverting Charge Pump Converter

Kevin B. Scott - Senior Strategic Marketing Engineer
Jesus Rosales - Applications Engineer
Mar 7th 2016
The Ćuk converter (also referred to as the two inductor inverting converter), the inverting charge pump and the single inductor inverting converter (also referred to as the inverting buck-boost) all provide a negative output voltage from a positive input voltage. However, engineers often unknowingly refer to these topologies ...
