A new configuration for a CMOS under voltage lockout (UVLO) circuit without a band-gap circuit as a reference voltage generator was presented. This new circuit block offers a method to monitor the power supply voltage without consuming a large quiescent current, especially in battery-powered devices, during the sleep mode of operation. The UVLO circuit was fabricated using a 0.5 mum CMOS technology operating at a supply voltage of up to 5V, yielding a low quiescent current of 12muA, an input high threshold voltage of 3.75 V and a hysteresis of 0.55 V. In addition, this dissertation presents a new design procedure for an integrated gate driver circuit to minimize the signal delay in switching converters. This design technique is useful for designing a gate driver circuit using any process technology. In this design, the signal propagation delay is optimized from the input to the output of the driver according to Delay = N Am (1 + HN ); where N is the number of stages and H is the ratio of gate capacitances between the input to output nodes. A new over-current detection/protection circuit based on the hiccup current limit for switching converter is also proposed. This dissertation presents a top-down design of an integrated synchronous hysteretic buck controller. The hysteretic controller with gate driver and over-current protection circuit was fabricated using a 1.5mum CMOS process and tested successfully on the bench. A discussion of the practical limitation of the maximum switching frequency for switching converter is presented.Chapter 4 High Frequency Controller Design Conventionally, power supply engineers are taught to think in the time-domain while RF engineers are skilled to think in the frequency-domain. To fruitfully design high-frequency DC-DC convertersanbsp;...
