Reducing voltage supply is one of the most effective way to reduce the power consumption, but, on the other hand it is a challenging choice for the analog designers. In this paper, different topologies, well-suited for low voltage and ultra-low voltage supply, are depicted, investigated, designed in the same standard 180 nm technology and compared, highlighting the benefits and the possible applications.
