Integrated Power Management Integrated Circuit
Platforms: Figures of Merit, Features and their correlation to
logic and analog blocks together with high voltage and
current power drivers on the same chip. This combination
allows serving a host of applications ranging from power
management in portable devices, power delivery in computer
motherboards through dc dc motor drives and to LED drivers
in street lighting and TV screens.
Local and Global Investigation of On-chip Power
