A high voltage integrated circuit (HVIC) switch designed as a building block for power converters operating up to 13.56 MHz from off-line voltages is presented. A CMOS-compatible, 500 V power device process is used to integrate control circuitry with a high-speed MOS gate driver and high voltage lateral power MOSFET. Fabrication of the HVIC switches has proceeded in two stages. The first batch of devices showed switching times of less than 5 ns for the power switch and good high frequency performance of a level-shifter for driving half bridge converters. In the second phase, a switch that monolithically integrates all the elements required to form a complete high-frequency converter has been designed.
