This paper presents a novel fully integrated ultra-low voltage DC-DC converter and its multi-stage architecture. DC-DC converter frequency has been analytically derived using model analysis and validated in Cadence environment. The proposed voltage quadrupling LC tank oscillator eliminates the buffer circuits utilized in the traditional DC-DC converter, hence improves the performance metrics such as efficiency and output power capacity. The circuit was designed in 180nm standard CMOS process… CONTINUE READING
