This paper proposes a charge pump based on a charge controlled memcapacitor. The operation of the charge pump is investigated along with the mathematical analysis of the memcapacitor. Different implementations of charge pump are summarized. The proposed charge pump has the capability of driving low input voltage in range of 200mv and the capability of operating at the low frequencies which makes it suitable for biomedical applications. © 2017 IEEE.
