    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone knew how to increase the output voltage of an arduino from around 5 V to a range of around 10 to 20V.

    It does not matter if I need another power supply. I'm outputing in voltage pulses and I'm using it to activate a
    MOSFET from the gate
    Digi-Key Part Number IRF530PBF-ND

    This is the basic inverting circuit, but VCC would be the higher voltage (10V to 15V). If you want to switch the MOSFET quickly you will need a little more complicated circuit.
