Single-inductor dual-output (SIDO) switching converters always suffer from large ripple and severe cross-regulation problem, when a large inductor current is switched between two outputs. This paper proposes a novel fly capacitor method for SIDO converters to reduce the output ripple and spike. An adaptive common-mode control is presented to suppress the cross-regulation problem. A duty-ratio-based current estimation method is proposed to detect the load current, and the converter can automatically switch between pulsewidth modulation and pulse-frequency modulation modes. The two outputs of the converter are specified for 1.2 V/400 mA and 1.8 V/200 mA with input voltage ranging from 2.7 to 5 V. The chip has been fabricated on a 0.25-?? m CMOS mixed-signal process. The conversion efficiency is 82% at a total output power of 840 mW, while the output ripple is about 20 mV and spike is less than 40 mV. The maximum overshot voltage during load response is 50 mV.
