Exemplary embodiments of the invention will be described in detail, and examples of the embodiments are illustrated in the accompanying drawings where same numerical references denote same parts. In the following, the embodiments will be described with reference to the accompanying drawings, in order to explain the invention.

As illustrated in FIG. 1, the voltage stabilizing device includes a signal detecting and amplifying circuit, a feedback voltage signal generating circuit and a logic processing circuit. The signal detecting and amplifying circuit is configured (i.e., structured and arranged) for detecting an operating voltage of the functional circuit, amplifying the detected operating voltage and outputting the amplified voltage signal to the logic processing circuit. The logic processing circuit is configured for adjusting a first control signal according to the amplified voltage signal and outputting the adjusted first control signal to the feedback voltage signal generating circuit.

FIG. 2 is a circuit diagram of a voltage stabilizing device applied for a boost circuit according to an exemplary embodiment of the invention. As shown in FIG. 2, the boost circuit herein is taken as an example of the functional circuit, and a voltage stabilizing device for the boost circuit is illustrated. Specifically, the voltage stabilizing device includes a signal detecting and amplifying circuit, a feedback voltage signal generating circuit and a logic processing circuit.

The signal detecting and amplifying circuit includes an operational amplifier, a first resistor R1 and a second resistor R2. A non-inverting input terminal of the operational amplifier is configured for detecting an operating voltage of the boost circuit, an inverting input terminal of the operational amplifier is electrically connected to the ground (i.e., grounding potential) via the first resistor R1, and an output terminal of the operational amplifier is connected to the logic processing circuit. The second resistor R2 is connected between the inverting input terminal and the output terminal of the operational amplifier. The signal detecting and amplifying circuit performs an operational amplification onto the detected operating voltage and outputs an amplified voltage signal to the logic processing circuit.

The feedback voltage signal generating circuit includes a first MOS transistor Q1 and a second MOS transistor Q2. A gate of the first MOS transistor Q1 and a gate of the second MOS transistor Q2 are connected to the logic processing circuit to receive a first control signal from the logic processing circuit. The first control signal includes gate driving signals G1 and G2 respectively applied onto the gate of the first MOS transistor Q1 and the gate of the second MOS transistor Q2 by the logic processing circuit, so that the logic processing circuit can use the gate driving signals G1 and G2 to respectively control the first MOS transistor Q1 and the second MOS transistor Q2. In addition, a drain of the first MOS transistor Q1 is connected to the logic processing circuit so as to provide the logic processing circuit with a feedback voltage signal FB.

Optionally, any one of the first MOS transistor Q1 and the second MOS transistor Q2 may be an NMOS transistor.

The feedback voltage signal generating circuit further includes: a third resistor R3, a fourth resistor R4, a fifth resistor R5, a sixth resistor R6 and a seventh resistor R7. A source of the first MOS transistor Q1 is connected to an output terminal of the boost circuit via the sixth resistor R6, a source of the second MOS transistor Q2 is connected to the output terminal of the boost circuit via serially-connected third resistor R3 and fourth resistor R4, a drain of the second MOS transistor Q2 is electrically connected to the ground via the seventh resistor R7, a terminal of the fifth resistor R5 is connected to the source of the second MOS transistor, and another terminal of the fifth resistor R5 is electrically connected to the ground.

The boost circuit includes a third MOS transistor Q3, an eighth resistor R8 and serially-connected inductor L1, diode D1 and capacitor C1. A gate of the third MOS transistor Q3 is connected to the logic processing circuit to receive a second control signal from the logic processing circuit, a drain of the third MOS transistor Q3 is connected to a node between the inductor L1 and the diode D1, and a source of the third MOS transistor Q3 is electrically connected to the ground via the eighth resistor R8. The non-inverting input terminal of the operational amplifier is connected to a node between a terminal of the eighth resistor R8 and the source of the third MOS transistor Q3, and another terminal of the eighth resistor R8 is connected to the ground. The eighth resistor R8 is configured to detect a current of the boost circuit and provides the operational amplifier with a voltage signal, the voltage signal after being amplified by the operational amplifier is inputted to the logic processing circuit for logic processing. The signal can feedback a working condition of the current of the boost circuit in real-time, and different operating currents may feedback different voltages to the logic processing circuit.

Optionally, the third MOS transistor Q3 may be an NMOS transistor.

The logic processing circuit adjusts the gate driving signals G1 and G2 according to the amplified voltage signal, and applies the gate driving signals G1 and G2 onto the gates of the first MOS transistor Q1 and the second MOS transistor Q2 respectively. The first MOS transistor Q1 and the second MOS transistor Q2 adjust the feedback voltage signal FB according to the gate driving signal G1 and G2.

In the example of boost circuit, the logic processing circuit, the operational amplifier, the resistor R8 and the third MOS transistor Q3 are contained in an integrated circuit (IC) module.

The logic processing circuit controls turned-on and turned-off states of the first MOS transistor Q1 and the second MOS transistor Q2 according to the signal at different voltage levels received from the operational amplifier. For example, if an amplitude of the voltage is larger than a specific threshold (i.e., means the operating current is large), the logic processing circuit controls the second MOS transistor Q2 to be turned on while the first MOS transistor Q1 to be turned off by the gate driving signals G1 and G2 respectively applied onto the gate of the first MOS transistor Q1 and the gate of the second MOS transistor Q2, which can make the amplitude of the feedback voltage signal FB be decreased, and correspondingly the output voltage of the boost circuit is decreased. Meanwhile, the feedback voltage signal FB is provided to the logic processing circuit, so as to make the IC module to compensate the decrease/drop of the output voltage caused by large current and reduce ripple. In addition, if the amplitude of the voltage is smaller than the specific threshold (i.e., means the operating current is small), the logic processing circuit controls the first MOS transistor Q1 to be turned on while the second MOS transistor Q2 to be turned off by the gate driving signals G1 and G2, which would make the amplitude of the feedback voltage signal FB be increased, and correspondingly the output voltage of the boost circuit is increased. In addition, the feedback voltage signal FB is provided to the logic processing circuit, so as to make the IC module to compensate the retrieve/increase of the output voltage caused by the small current and reduce ripple. The specific threshold can be set according actual requirement.

Optionally, besides detects the output voltage level of the operational amplifier, the logic processing circuit further detects the feedback voltage signal FB. The logic processing circuit controls an on-duty cycle of the third MOS transistor Q3 by adjusting a duty ratio of the second control signal applied onto the gate of the third MOS transistor Q3 according to the amplitude of the feedback voltage signal FB, and thereby controls the magnitude of the overall output voltage Vout so as to perform compensation in time. For example, if the amplitude of the detected feedback voltage signal FB is smaller than another specific threshold, the logic processing circuit makes the on-duty cycle of the third MOS transistor Q3 be increased by adjusting the duty ratio of the second control signal; whereas if the amplitude of the detected feedback voltage signal FB is larger than the another specific threshold, the logic processing circuit makes the on-duty cycle of the third MOS transistor Q3 be decreased by adjusting the duty ratio of the second control signal, so that the output voltage Vout of the boost circuit is dropped/decreased. The another specific threshold can be set according to actual requirement. As above described, it can further achieve the voltage stabilizing function of the voltage stabilizing device.

Optionally, the logic processing circuit further may include an error amplifier (not shown). The error amplifier is configured for monitoring the feedback voltage signal FB and comparing the feedback voltage signal FB with a preset predetermined signal, so that the logic processing circuit can adjust the duty ratio of the second control signal as per the foregoing described manner and thereby adjust the magnitude of the on-duty cycle of the third MOS transistor Q3.

As described above, when works in a circumstance of light and heavy load changes, the voltage stabilizing device can effectively feedback the magnitude of output load in time and make the output be basically stable in a straight line by controlling feedback, and thereby can reduce ripple while maintaining the stability of the output voltage.

It is noted that, the invention only illustrates some electronic components. The skilled person in the art can set more finely-divided resistors and compensation circuits according to requirements and can set more resistors and MOS transistors, so as to achieve a more stable control.

Although the invention takes the above circuit structures as examples, the voltage stabilizing device can be applied for various functional circuits (e.g., the above described boost circuit) and further can be extended into other topological architectures. For example, the voltage stabilizing device can be applied into a driving circuit of a liquid crystal display deice, so as to achieve functions of voltage regulation and ripple reduction.

In addition, based on the processing carried out by various elements defined by the invention, the skilled person in the art can make the voltage stabilizing device according to the exemplary embodiments of the invention be a variety of hardware components according to requirements and then be applied for various electronic equipments.

The above embodiments of the invention are merely exemplary, and the invention is not limited thereto. Those skilled in the art should be understood that without departing from the principle and spirit of the invention, various modifications can be made to these embodiments. The scope of the invention is defined in the claims and their equivalents.
