© 2018 IEEE. Switched Capacitor DC-DC converters play an important role in low power technologies such as energy harvesting systems as they can provide step-up voltage outputs with lower inputs. This paper models and analyses Switched Capacitor DC-DC converters with Signal Transition Graphs, which are originally used for modelling asynchronous circuits. With this new approach, the causality relations between phases, capacitors and internal signals in Switched-Capacitor DC-DC converter can be described distinctly, especially for some complicated converters. This is the first attempt at generating formal models for these types of components, which previously have been described by natural language and waveforms.
