Low Voltage Low Power Current Comparator Using Dtmos

[Full Text]



Narendra Pratap Sharma, Maneesha Gupta



current comparator,



In this paper we have proposed a novel ultra-low power current comparator which is based on Dynamic Threshold Metal Oxide Semi-conductor (DTMOS) technique to reduce the power dissipation which is achieved by reducing the supply voltage. The Circuit has been implemented at supply voltage as low as ±0.3 V and in 0.18 μm (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) TSMC technology parameters.
