An artificial retina can replace some of the functionality of the eye in people that have experienced partial or complete loss of vision. Loss of vision is associated with many negative effects in one’s life and can be a debilitating condition. Artificial retinas in the form of a chip thus offer the potential to greatly improve people’s lives....

Resonant switch-capacitor (ReSC) is a type of hybrid switched-capacitor (HSC) which utilizes both inductor and capacitor, bearing the potential to overpower conventional switched-capacitor (SC) and magnetic-based converters. This work introduces a novel four-phase series-parallel resonant switch-capacitor (ReSC) DC-DC converter topology, which...

In the past decades, inductor-based synchronized switch harvesting on inductor (SSHI) rectifiers have been widely employed in many active rectification systems for piezoelectric energy harvesting. Although SSHI rectifiers achieve high energy extraction performance compared to passive full-bridge rectifier (FBR), the performance greatly...

Multiple voltage conversion ratio (VCR) recursive switched-capacitor (SC) dc-dc converters, based on several basic 2:1 converters, are widely used for on-chip power supplies due to their flexible VCRs for higher energy efficiency. However, conventional multiple VCR SC converters usually have one or more 2:1 converters unused for some VCRs,...

This thesis presents a 48V-to-1V 10-level dual inductor hybrid converter (DIHC) containing 11 on-chip switches and an off-chip Gallium Nitride (GaN) switch. Thanks to the 10-level Dickson switched-capacitor (SC) circuit, most of the voltage stress will be taken over by off-chip capacitors, which reduces the voltage stress of each switch to 4.8 V...

The inherently intermittent nature of photovoltaic (PV) energy has brought increasing interest towards the integration between PV sources and Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS). In this paper, a Series Partial Power Processing (PPP) converter based on Capacitive Power Transfer (CPT) is proposed to integrate PV and BESS in a grid-connected...

This work proposes an energy harvesting platform that is able to convert power from both DC sources (photo-voltaic cells and TEGs) as well as piezo element sources. It does so only using a single input channel to which a single harvester can be connected. The proposed system is able to differentiate between the two source...

In this paper, we propose a new scheme to directly power a 4.9-5.6GHz LC oscillator from a recursive switched-capacitor DC-DC converter. A finite-state machine is integrated to automatically adjust the conversion ratio and switching frequency of the converter such that its DC output voltage is within ±5% of the desired 1V across input voltage...

This article presents guidelines for designing the power supply blocks of RF oscillators. To preserve their spectral purity, the requirements on the noise and ripple of the supply voltage are firstly evaluated based on the oscillator supply pushing factor and the oscillator Figure-of-Merit (FOM). Those specifications are then employed to design...

This paper aims to present a novel switched-capacitor multi-level inverter. The presented structure generates a staircase near sinusoidal AC voltage by using a single DC source and a few capacitors to step-up the input voltage. The nearest level control (NLC) strategy is used to control the operation of the converter. These switching states...

A new structure of switched capacitor multilevel inverter (SCMLI) capable of voltage boosting and with self-balancing ability is introduced in this article. This advantage is the result of a step by step rise of capacitor voltages in each module, supplied by just one DC voltage source. The proposed topology generates a sinusoidal output...

In this paper, a power-efficient multiphase Recursive Switched Capacitor (RSC) converter is presented. Conventionally, RSC converters are used to obtain many different output voltages from a fixed input voltage. Here, the converter provides a fixed output voltage of 1 V at 1 mA from an input voltage ranging from 1.4 V to 4.5 V. It has one...

This paper proposes an ultra-low-voltage (ULV) fractional-N all-digital PLL (ADPLL) powered from a single 0.5-V supply. While its digitally controlled oscillator (DCO) runs directly at 0.5 V, an internal switched-capacitor dc-dc converter ``doubles'' the supply voltage to all the digital circuitry and particularly regulates the time-to...

The zero/low intermediate frequency (IF) receiver (RX) architecture has enabled full CMOS integration. As the technology scales and wireless standards become ever more challenging, the issues related to time-varying dc offsets, the second-order nonlinearity, and flicker noise become more critical. In this paper, we propose a new architecture of...

In a radio-frequency (RF) system-on-chip (SoC), a digital baseband/application processor, which occupies most of the silicon area, determines the SoC fabrication process technology and voltage supply. The rest of the circuitry, including RF front-end and frequency synthesizer, must then adopt the chosen process technology, i.e., presently low...
