Abstract

This article describes a ramp generator circuit which provides an on-chip means of generating a more optimum ramp waveform to ramp up the capacitors in a cross-coupled charge transfer latch circuit, and reduces the likelihood of a latch setting in the wrong state while decreasing the overall latch cycle time.
