| |PDF (3101 KB) | HTML

Power gating is able to counter subthreshold leakage in low-power nanometer technology circuits without sacrificing performance. But mode transitions in power-gated circuits are accompanied by large inrush/discharge currents causing inductive bounce noise on the power supply and ground rails. This issue has been addressed by gradually turning on the sleep transistor; but this introduces a fixed lo... View full abstract»

An admittance or impedance matrix of a power converter is highly desirable for harmonic analysis of a power system. However, power converters are inherently nonlinear and time-varying systems. Therefore, a small-signal harmonic model needs to be derived. While there have been many methods to obtain the small-signal models of DC-DC converters, most of these methods cannot be directly applied to AC-... View full abstract»
