Abstract: In this paper, high voltage (HV) tolerant levelshifters with combinational functionality are proposed based on Differential Cascode Voltage Switch Logic (DCVSL). These levelshifters are tolerant to supply voltages higher than the process limit for individual CMOS transistors. The proposed HV DCVSL level shifters are particularly useful when it is mandatory to ensure a specific behavior during out of the normal mode periods (power up; power down; reset; etc.). These high voltage tolerant logic circuits were us…
