The LTC3225 IC is a supercapacitor charger enabling a fixed output voltage of 4.8V or 5.3V from an input between 2.8V and 5.5V.
This can be useful for providing high current bursts for radio transmissions (e.g. GPRS, GSM or Iridium), and especially in battery operated devices.
The IC is only available in a small package (2mm x 3mm 10 lead DFN).
This breakout board allows for rapid prototyping by making the IC pins available as a DIL package.
It can then be used easily on a breadboard or PCB.
The breakout board is stocked with Amazon for rapid low cost shipping worldwide.
