This is a simple-minded design tool that allows you to calculate component values MC34063A simple switcher chip. It displays the appropriate scematic diagram (step-up, step-down, or inverting) and checks for current and voltage limits. Feedback resistors are chosen from standard component values so that the output is as close to desired value as possible.
Typical input capacitor value is about 100uH, all electorlytics need to be low ESR types. The fast schottky diode should be sufficent for a current needed, 1N5818, 1N5819, 1N5820 and alike will do just fine.
