Silicon-on-insulator power management integrated circuit for thin-film solid-state lithium-ion micro batteries

by 1979- Jackson, Jeremy Ross

Abstract (Summary)
This thesis presents the design and implementation of a power management integrated circuit (IC) that is capable of both current and voltage charging thin-film, solid-state, lithium-ion micro-batteries. The power management system has been fabricated using a single-poly, 0.35-µm, partially-depleted, silicon-on-insulator process (PD-SOI). The system contains a temperature stable current charger (current generator and a 4-bit current-mode DAC), a regulated voltage supply (voltage amplifier), and a voltage monitoring circuit (2-bit flash ADC). Experimental results of the first version of the power management system show proper functionality was obtained. The current charger produced a 2% worst-case variation in output current over the temperature range 0–100°C. The regulated voltage output was measured to be 4.4 V and the digital outputs of the flash ADC transitioned at 3.45 and 4.76 V. iv
