    How exactly does a solid-state IC produce a higher voltage than input without the use of a transformer?...

    Anyone know how switching causes it? I had a DC to DC IC the only thing it required was a couple of caps and inductor to smooth the ripple effect out but could supply 12vdc up to 24vdc from just 3vdc...

    How huh what? how's it manage that? any one know?.... does somehow turning on a voltage on and off thousands of times a second produce more voltage? is this magic? what? im confused and nothing to help me understand this?...

    Is this important? do i need it? no i've got a curious mind and nothing else, no project, no diagram, i just wish to understand this better.

    Thank you in advance :)
