 Abstract
A four-times-VDD switch that supports high and low voltage mode operations is demonstrated in a generic 65 nm logic process. The proposed switch shows the robust operation for supply voltages ranging from VDD to . A cascaded voltage switch and a voltage doubler based charge pump generate the intermediate supply voltage levels required for the proposed high voltage switch. All the high voltage circuits developed in this work can be implemented using standard logic transistors without being subject to any voltage overstress.
