Abstract

In this paper, a CMOS sub-1-V nanopower reference is proposed, which is realized without resistors and with only standard CMOS transistors. The proposed circuit affords reference current and reference voltage simultaneously. It is verified with CMOS 180 nm process with silicon measurement results. The temperature coefficients for output voltage Vref and output current Iref are 28 ppm/°C and 138 ppm/°C, respectively. The minimum supply voltage is 0.85 V and the minimum power consumption is achieved about 15.8 nW. Also, the line regulations of the Vref and Iref are 0.74%/V and 4.15%/V, respectively.
