This paper presents a proposed Flipped Voltage Follower (FVF) based output capacitorless low-dropout (OCL-LDO) regulator using Dual-Summed Miller Frequency Compensation (DSMFC) technique. Validated by UMC 65-nm CMOS process, the simulation results have shown that the proposed LDO regulator can be stabilized by a total compensation capacitance (CC) of 8 pF for a load capacitance (CL) ranging from 10 pF to 10 nF. It consumes 23.7 μA quiescent current with a 1.2 V supply voltage. With a dropout voltage of 200 mV, the LDO regulator can support a maximum 50 mA load current. It can settle in less than 1.7 μs with a 1% accuracy for the whole CL range. The proposed LDO regulator is comparable to other reported works in terms of figure-of-merit (FOM). Most significantly, it can drive the widest range of CL and achieve the highest CL(max)/CC ratio with respect to the counterparts.
