For new vehicles with a “Start-Stop” operating mode, the engine is turned off frequently to improve fuel economy.  But low-voltage drop-outs must be avoided during re-start. 

The NCV8876 component from On Semiconductor makes it easy to boost the battery voltage during these drop-outs.  You can buy an eval board to experiment with this chip:
