In this article, an output-capacitorless low-dropout (OCL-LDO) regulator that features low-power, small-transient-spike, and process-temperature (PT)-aware design for transient sustainability is presented. The circuit architecture is based on the improved PT-aware current source for keeping stable bandwidth and the proposed PT-aware transistor biasing network in conjunction of dual fast local feedback (DFLF) loops in a single power transistor stage to yield both enhanced and sustained transient metrics under a sub-1-V supply. Fabricated in 40-nm CMOS technology, the regulator can deliver a full-load current of 100 mA at a 100-pF load under a 0.75-V supply. From the measured results of 12 samples, it consumes an average quiescent power of 19.5 μW and quiescent current of 26 μA. It displays an average settling time of 414 ns for a full-load current of 100 mA at room temperature. The average load transient voltage spike is 23.9 mV and small when compared to the reported works at a similar level of load current. Finally, the process corner simulations at different temperatures together with the 12 measured samples at temperature corners have validated the sustainability of transient metrics.
