A fully on-die, digitally controlled, 500MHz switching, 250mA rated output buck Voltage Regulator (VR) implemented in 22nm Tri-Gate CMOS is presented. The silicon measured a peak efficiency of 68% and consumed an area of 0.6mm 2 (without output decoupling) with a power density of about 410 mW/mm 2. The paper also demonstrates a controller bandwidth of(More)
Active conduction modulation techniques are demonstrated in a fully integrated multi-ratio switched-capacitor voltage regulator with hysteretic control, implemented in 22nm tri-gate CMOS with high-density MIM capacitor. We present (i) an adaptive switching frequency and switch-size scaling scheme for maximum efficiency tracking across a wide range voltages(More)
