The current trend towards low-voltage supply and low-power (LVLP) design is mainly caused by the growing demand for battery-operated portable equipment such as watches, smart phones and implantable devices (e.g., pacemakers and hearing aids). The operation of these circuits for long periods requires a significant amount of energy from the battery. However, battery size is often a limiting factor as its volume is limited for portability. In addition, the speed and high-integration density of… CONTINUE READING
