This paper presents a high-efficiency positive buck- boost converter with mode-select circuits and feed-forward techniques. Four power transistors produce more conduction and more switching losses when the positive buck-boost converter operates in buck-boost mode. Utilizing the mode-select circuit, the proposed converter can decrease the loss of switches and let the positive buck-boost converter operate in buck, buck-boost, or boost mode. By adding feed-forward techniques, the proposed converter can improve transient response when the supply voltages are changed. The proposed converter has been fabricated with TSMC 0.35-μm CMOS 2P4M processes. The total chip area is 2.59 × 2.74 mm2 (with PADs), the output voltage is 3.3 V, and the regulated supply voltage range is from 2.5-5 V. Its switching frequency is 500 kHz and the maximum power efficiency is 91.6% as the load current equals 150 mA.
