A voltage regulator with automatic accelerated aging circuit (200) includes a comparator (202), a switched voltage divider (204), and a current-to-voltage converter (224). The voltage regulator (200) is implemented in an integrated circuit and monitors a power supply voltage provided to the integrated circuit. When the power supply voltage is within a first normal voltage range, the voltage regulator (200) provides a normal internal supply voltage to the integrated circuit. When the power supply voltage is within a second higher voltage range, the voltag...
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A voltage regulator, comprising:a comparator having a first input terminal for receiving a first reference voltage, a second input terminal, and an output terminal for providing a control signal, wherein the first reference voltage is provided by a circuit which causes the first reference voltage to be relatively constant;a voltage source controlled by a power supply voltage, and in response, providing a second reference voltage to the second input terminal of the comparator, wherein the voltage source causes the second refere...
