An ultra-low-power and high-accuracy on-off bandgap reference (BGR) is demonstrated in this paper for implantable medical electronics. The proposed BGR shows an average current consumption of 78 nA under 2.8 V supply and an output voltage of 1.17 V with an untrimmed accuracy of 0.69%. The on-off bandgap combined with sample-and-hold switched-RC filter is developed to reduce power consumption and noise. The on-off mechanism allows a relatively higher current in the sample phase to alleviate the process variation of bipolar transistors. To compensate the error caused by operational amplifier offset, the correlated double sampling strategy is adopted in the BGR. The proposed BGR is implemented in 0.35 μm standard CMOS process and occupies a total area of 0.063 mm2. Measurement results show that the circuit works properly in the supply voltage range of 1.8–3.2 V and achieves a line regulation of 0.59 mV/V. When the temperature varies from −20 to 80 °C, an average temperature coefficient of 19.6 ppm/°C is achieved. View Full-Text
