Abstract
This paper presents the design of a hybrid on-chip VLSI DC/DC converter for low to medium integrated circuit power consumption that combines a switching and a linear regulator in parallel. The main goal is to take the best of both approaches, obtaining good power efficiency as in switching DC/DC converters, with small voltage output ripple as in linear converters. While the switching regulator is used to drive most of the load current, the linear regulator supplies the required current to filter...
