A novel low-power dissipation and high-speed converter-control-IC has been developed for the transmitting amplifier in digital portable telephones. The IC consists mainly of CMOS devices to reduce the bias current. To improve circuit speed, bipolar transistors are used in the output stage of the operational amplifier and in the current sources of the oscillator because they have a larger current capability and smaller parasitic capacitance than CMOS devices. The IC has one-fifth the bias current of a conventional control circuit consisting of discrete devices, and it can operate up to a switching frequency of 3MHz. The small bias current increases converter efficiency, and the high switching frequency reduces converter size. Using this IC, converter loss is 17% less than that with a conventional control circuit.
