Abstract
In this paper, we show the Field Programmable Charge Pump (FPCP) concept in which the FPGA concept is applied to Charge Pump DC-DC converters. With this scheme, a fully programmable circuit is obtained to implement any Charge Pump topology and voltage conversion ratio with the same circuit. According to presented simulation results, the FPCP has only a slight performance loss due to programmability compared to a fixed Charge Pump.
