They function the same way as DC-to-AC inverters, except that the switching devices are BJTs in the first circuit and MOSFETs in the second circuit.

It is my understanding that 'converter' is a general term embracing both DC-to-DC and DC-to-AC devices, whereas 'inverter' originally applied specifically to DC-to-AC devices. But both terms are loosely applied these days.
