GSM baseband-radios system-on-chip (SoC) fabricated in CMOS technology are well established on the market. The next evolutionary step on the proceeding integration path is the extension of the baseband-radio functionality by further integration of power-management-unit (PMU) functionality. This PMU of a mobile phone is normally realized as a separate chip. The integration of the PMU promises lowest phone cost, eases PCB design, reduces phone development time, and enables overall system… CONTINUE READING
