## Step 1: Material Preparation

For this tutorial, you need to have the following items:

1. DC-DC Step Up Module
2. Crocodile Clip
3. Male-Male Jumper Wires
4. DC Jack (Female)
6. Multimeter

## Step 2: Pin Connection

In order to observe the output voltage in 3 different voltage conditions, the DC-DC Step Down Converter is used to step down the voltage to 1.2V, 3.0V and 4.5V. To obtain the result, below is the steps:

1. Connect the power supply 6V to DC-DC Step Down Converter and tuning the potential meter in order to get output voltage 1.2V (3.0V and 4.5V for the other turns).
2. Connect the output voltage 1.2V to DC-DC Step Up module.
3. Use the multimeter to check the output of DC-DC Step Up module.
4. Repeat the step by using the different voltage.

Note: If you are using battery, the total battery voltage used should not exceed 5V.

## Step 3: Result (1.2V)

Based on the picture above, it shows that the output voltage is fixed at 5V with low input voltage of 1.2V.

## Step 4: Result (3.0V)

Based on the picture above, the input voltage have been increased to 3.0V and the output voltage at the USB port is constant at 5V.

## Step 5: Result (5V)

Based on the picture above, the input voltage have been increased to 4.5V yet the output voltage at the USB port is constant at 5V.
