I am supposed to build a boost converter that steps-up a 1.5V input to 5V (also I only have 1.5V as my power source). I have designed the circuit out but the only problem I face right now is that I can't turn the MOSFET on with 1.5V peak-max. I am using a B012N03LX3 MOSFET as my switch.
This is my schematic connection btw (assume that the Diode is ideal and assume that NE555 can operate with 1.5V which the simulation show that it can) Also I check the datasheet and I know that the Vgs(th) must be at least 1V to turn the MOSFET on
And the Vne555 has the output of this (10kHz with 0.7 Duty Cycle)
But the voltage output at Vload is
So from this I am pretty sure that the MOSFET did not get sufficient voltage at Vgs(th) to turn on. But due to the fact that I only have 1.5V as my voltage supply I am not sure what correction I need to do to my circuit to make sure that the MOSFET is able to turn on (with only 1.5V as a voltage source) properly
So any idea on what should i change in my circuitry to make it work?
