I am looking for a 5V(USB) -> 12V step-up regulator for an Assistive Technology project. Your 12V Step-Up Voltage Regulator U3V12F12 seems to be perfect, and I have one on order to try it out.
However, it’s status is “not recommended for new designs” and I’ve read what that means, and I don’t see a good alternative on your site that is recommended. Can you point me in the right direction?
My current needs are low (appx 50mA @ 12V) and I have very little room, so this tiny converter is kind of perfect. I realize I might need a 33uF cap but even with that this will fit on the board I’m making.
The only alternative I’ve found on your site is the much larger U3V70F12 (which is also 4x the price).
I am OK with an answer of “we will be coming out with a replacement before we kill that product” (I trust you), but would hate to design a product and then find I have to redesign it in a year…
