pply voltage to a remote board must traverse a long cable, the voltage at the end of the line sometimes drops to unacceptable levels. This + 5-V/ + 5-V converter addresses this by taking the reduced voltage at the end of the supply line and boosting it back to + 5 V. This can be especially useful in remote display devices, such as some point-of-sale (POS) terminals, where several meters of cable could separate the terminal from the readout.
