I am looking for a simple IC solution how to boost +5VDC to +24VDC 1A. Requirements:
- THT (the project is on a 2.54mm(0.1") experimental breadboard)
- low-cost (this is a hobby project, so arround $5 for the whole converter system)
- simple (fewest external elements)
- has been around for a while (most recent chips are delivered to my country mainly by the Farnell, charging high transport prices).
Is this attainable? What are a part number or two, that I can toss in the local electronics shop and get the device working by the afternoon?
