Also Available Domains Tanner EDA|Cadence EDA|Low Power VLSI

Project Code :TVMABE199


The main aim of this project is to present a Low-Power Power-on-Reset circuit based on the reference of current.


In this brief, an accurate low-power power-on-reset circuit is proposed. In order to get an accurate trip-voltage with little overhead, a low-power architecture based on current reference and current comparator is proposed. The reference current in the proposed power-on-reset circuit is mainly provided by the sub-threshold current of several native NMOS transistors, and a stable hysteresis window can be obtained by adjusting the number of enabled native NMOS transistors. This entire schematic is simulated in Cadence Virtuoso/Tanner  employing GPDK 45nm library file.
