Claim of US Patent No. 10,658,928

1. A multi resonant switched-capacitor converter (MRSCC), comprising:a series of switches coupled between an input voltage and an output connection;
a pair of diodes coupled across the output connection; and
a resonant circuit coupled at a first end between first and second switches of the series of switches and at a second end between the pair of diodes, the resonant circuit comprising a resonant tank including a first capacitor and a resonant inductor, and a resonant component in parallel with at least a portion of the resonant tank.
