Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose a high performance direct bootstrapped CMOS latched driver circuit (J-driver). It is a 28% faster and occupies a 58% less active area as compared to a counterpart circuit (L-driver) using indirect bootstrap technique. In addition, our driver J-driver reduces the power consumption by a 2% in driving capacitive loads from 1pF to 6pF. The challenge in designing this latched driver is to appropriately trade-off performance against the active area.
