The upper branch acts as a positive doubler, and the lower branch acts as a negative doubler; thus, a positive voltage quadrupler is achieved.
According to duality principle, meshes of the voltage quadrupler are replaced with nodes, and capacitors are replaced with inductors, while diodes are with no change, yielding the proposed NCDR as shown in Figure 5(b).
