Conventional charge pump circuits use a fixed switching frequency that leads to power efficiency degradation for loading less than the rated loading. [...] Key Method The frequency tuning range of this circuit is designed to be from 100 Hz to 25 kHz. A start-up circuit is included to ensure proper pumping action and avoid latch-up during power-up. A slow turn-on, fast turn-off driving scheme is used in the clock buffer to reduce power dissipation. The new dual charge pump circuit was fabricated in a 3-/spl mu/m…Expand
