Abstract

This paper presents an inductorless dual-output switched-capacitor DC-DC converter employing pseudo-three-phase swap-and-cross control (PTPSCC) and an amplitude modulation mechanism (AMM). The AMM circuit scales the amplitudes of the driving signals for the switches according to the loading conditions in order to minimize switching losses. To reduce output ripples, average charge distribution, and improve regulation, the PTPSCC circuit continuously switches power transistors to deliver enough charge to the outputs by keeping at least one flying capacitor connected to each output. The two outputs were regulated at 2.5 V and 0.8 V with input ranges of 1.7-2 V. The maximum output loading was 100 mA for both outputs. A power efficiency of 90.5% was achieved at a maximum total output power of 330 mW with a switching frequency of 500 kHz. The maximal peak-to-peak output ripple voltages for the two outputs under 100 mA load currents were suppressed to below 26 mV and 20 mV, respectively.
