Summary: 
A novel CMOS level converter with balanced rise and fall delays for arbitrary voltage conversion is presented. The proposed level converter was designed using a 90 nm CMOS process technology. The comparison result indicates that the maximum difference between the rise and fall delays of the proposed level converter was reduced by up to 92% compared to the conventional CMOS level converters.
