Sprache des Tagungstitel:
his research introduces a new concept to generate PTAT and CTAT voltages precisely through switched-capacitor operation. In replacement of the classical BJT, the active bulk diode is utilized and forward biased by a charge-pump. During capacitor discharge the respective pn-junction voltages are sampled at different time points and further combined by charge-sharing techniques. A bandgap reference with this architecture shows an untrimmed accuracy of ± 0.73% (3?), consuming only 21nA in a 16nm FinFET process. Similarly, a thermal sensor was implemented with an 8-bit SAR readout, which achieves a precision of ? 2°C without calibration on 2500 ?m2 silicon area. The simple structures feature intrinsic supply rejection down to 0.85V and a digital-alike operation.
