This thesis presents a tri-mode dc-dc converter that can operate in buck, boost and buck-boost configuration. A power transmission gate is implemented in the converter as the high side driver of the H-bridge output stage. A one-step dead-time correction technique is also implemented based on a previous work of buck converter topology. This tri-mode converter is designed to use the lithium-ion battery as input voltage source (2.7 to 4.2V) and provide an output voltage from 1 to 5V with an output current of up to 0.5A. The switching frequency is fixed at 1.5MHz. This converter combines different efficiency enhancement techniques such as power transmission gate, one-step dead-time correction and segmented power devices on one chip which increases the complexity of integrated circuit implementation. A peak efficiency of 93% is observed in the boost mode. A further improvement of 3.3% in the peak efficiency is achieved with dead-time correction.
