The negative output elementary circuit operated in the discontinuous conduction mode is discussed. The voltage transfer gain of this dc-to-dc converter depends on switching frequency, conduction duty ratio, inductance, and load resistance. The condition for the discontinuous conduction mode is derived and verified. The variation ratio of the output voltage is also derived.
