Dual-output regulating rectifier is highly desired in wireless power transfer (WPT) for sub-100mW bioimplants. Such rectifiers perform voltage rectification and dual-output regulation simultaneously, thus avoiding post DC-DC conversions and cascaded power losses [1 –4]. However, the conventional dual-output structure suffers from a low voltage conversion ratio (VCR) (< 1) due to the full bridge rectifier (FBR) topology (Fig. 1), severely limiting the receiver operation when wireless link condition varies [1–2]. In order to extend the operational range without increasing the power demand from the transmitter, [3] presents a charge-pump based dual-output rectifier; however, it uses 10 power transistors (PTs) and 8 off-chip capacitors, degrading the power conversion efficiency (PCE) and increasing the integration cost. Alternatively, the current-mode dual-output rectifier can realize a VCR higher than 1, but the output power is limited to less than 10mW [4], which is insufficient for advanced bioimplants. In this work, a 13. 56MHz single-stage dual-output voltage doubler (DOVD) is proposed to address the above limitations, which employs only two PTs and a fully integrated design. lt can achieve a peak VCR of1.78 and outputs power up to 8lmWwith a 91.8% peak PCE.@en
