Paper Abstract

A micromechanical silicon device suitable for DC-DC voltage up-conversion is investigated theoretically. The behavior of the converter is simulated in the time domain using a circuit simulator. In simulations ignoring parasitic capacitances, DC voltage of level of 16 V is increased to 32 V using a micromechanical converter. The output power is 2 mW for a device with 1 mm2 surface area.
