An average current mode controlled single-inductor dual-output (SIDO) buck converter is presented. The outputs are specified with 1.2 V/400 mA and 1.8 V/200 mA. The proposed decoupling model helps to analyze the multi-loop system and to design the on-chip compensators. The converter has been fabricated in 0.25-mum mixed-signal process. Simulation and measurement results confirm the proposed analysis. The power efficiency is 86% at a total output power of 840 mW while the output ripples are about 40 mV at an oscillator frequency of 600 KHz.
