This paper considers a unique type of multitude DC/DC conversion ratios switched capacitor converter. The multitude conversion ratios enable the converter to be able to be almost continuous and competitive to inductive based converters. The paper summarizes the basic rules of the topology as well as presenting two possible ways of implementing the topology. The paper also discusses the difference between the series type topology and the parallel one as well as the reasons to implement the latter type of converter. The topologies are presented theoretically as well as the actual prototype characteristics and experimental results.
