This paper presents the design of a high-voltage driver based on stacked standard low-voltage CMOS with an adapted level shifter. Both circuits are designed in 65-nm TSMC technology with a nominal voltage of 2.5 V without any passive elements. The control voltages to regulate the stacked transistors of the HV-driver are achieved by proposing cascode self-biasing method, therefore no reference voltages are required. The driver and the level shifter are optimized for arbitrary supply voltages… CONTINUE READING

Key Quantitative Results

  • This simplifies the operation of the HV-driver and level shifter and also extends the range of the applied supply voltage by about 66.7% when compared against common HVdrivers and level shifters.
