Title: Low Power Ramp Generator with MOSFET and CNTFET Transistors
Keywords: CNTFET transistor; ramp generator; buck dc-dc converter; pow

Abstract: In this paper we compare low power ramp generator schematics realized with conventional MOSFET transistors and CNTFET transistors. The current consumption and power losses of the both circuits are evaluated and analyzed. The generator circuit is part of an overall buck dc-dc converter system, which uses a PWM control technique. The investigation is performed in Cadence Spectre circuit simulator using the 0.35 µm CMOS technology design kit.
