    Abstract

    In this paper, a CMOS sub-1-V nanopower reference is proposed, which is implemented without resistors and with only standard CMOS transistors. The proposed circuit has the most attractive merit that it can afford reference current and reference voltage simultaneously. Moreover, the leakage compensation technique is utilized, and thus it has very low temperature coefficient for a wide temperature range. The proposed circuit is verified by SPICE simulation with CMOS 0.18um process. The temperature coefficient of the reference voltage and reference current are 0.0037%/°C and 0.0091%/°C, respectively. Also, the power supply voltage can be as low as 0.85V and its power consumption is only 5.1nW.
