Abstract

A low-power switched-capacitor circuit is disclosed. The low-power switched-capacitor circuit includes a p-channel switched-capacitor integrator and an n-channel switched-capacitor integrator. The p-channel switched-capacitor integrator includes a first set of input transistors controlled by a first set of capacitors and switches. The n-channel switched-capacitor integrator includes a second set of input transistors controlled by a second set of capacitors and switches. The p-channel switched-capacitor integrator and the n-channel switched-capacitor integrator function together in a push-pull fashion such that a required transconductance as well as width and drain current of the first and second sets of input transistors are reduced by half of those in a conventional switch-capacitor circuit.
