A new 2.5V CMOS large capacitive-load driver circuit, using a direct bootstrap technique, for low-voltage CMOS VLSI digital design is presented. The proposed driver circuit exhibits a high speed and low power consumption to drive large capacitive loads. We compare our driver structure with the direct bootstrap circuit based on Chen et al. (2002) in terms of the product of three metrics, active area, propagation time delay, and power consumption. Results demonstrate the superior performance of the proposed driver circuit.
