  • Publication number: 20240120847
    Abstract: A voltage regulator having a multiple of main stages and at least one accelerated voltage regulator (AVR) bridge is provided. The main stages may respond to low frequency current transients and provide DC output voltage regulation. The AVR bridges are switched much faster than the main stages and respond to high frequency current transients without regulating the DC output voltage. The AVR bridge frequency response range can overlap with the main stage frequency response range, and the lowest frequency to which the AVR bridges respond may be set lower than the highest frequency to which the main stages respond.
