Power-on reset circuits are available as discrete devices as well as on-chip solutions and are indispensable to initialize some critical nodes of analog and digital designs during power-on. In this paper, we present a power-on reset circuit specifically designed for on-chip applications. The mentioned POR circuit should meet certain design requirements necessary to be integrated on-chip, some of them being area-efficiency, power-efficiency, supply rise-time insensitivity and ambient temperature insensitivity. The circuit is implemented within a small area (60mum times 35mum) using the 2.5V tolerant MOSFETs of a 0.28mum CMOS technology. It has a maximum quiescent current consumption of 40muA and works over infinite range of supply rise-times and ambient temperature range of -40degC to 150degC
