Title: Design of Two-Phase Switching-Mode Concerter for Communication Applications with Cadence on CMOS 0.35 µm Technology
Keywords: two-phase switching-mode dc-dc converter, CMOS technology, C

Abstract: The electronic and communication technologies have developed rapidly in the last years. This leads to the fast growing market of the battery powered portable wireless communication devices, such like mobile phones, tablets and others. Design and implementation of proper power supply circuits can help to increase the system run-time using more effectively battery’s energy. In this is presented two-phase switching-mode interleaved dc-dc converter designed on CMOS 0.35 μm technology with Cadence. Two different types of control respectively pulse-width modulation (PWM) and hysteresis control method have been investigated. The received results prove the applicability of two-phase switching-mode dc-dc converter for wireless communication applications.
