This paper surveys and discusses the state-of-the-art of integrated switched-capacitor and inductive power converters. After introducing applications that drive the need for integrated switching power converters, implementation issues to be addressed for integrated switched-capacitor and inductive converters are given, as well as design examples. At the end of this paper, a comprehensive set of integrated power converters are compared in terms of the main specifications and performance metrics, thereby allowing a categorization and providing application-oriented design guidelines.
