Title: Regulator and high voltage generator including the same

Abstract: A regulator includes a current path unit coupled between an input terminal and a ground terminal and including a first current determination unit coupled between the input terminal and a control node and configured to supply the high voltage to the control node so that a first or second current path is selected depending on a voltage of the control node, and a second current determination unit coupled between the control node and the ground terminal and configured to control the voltage of the control node depending on an input voltage, a voltage supply unit configured to supply the high voltage to an output terminal depending on the voltage of the control node, a voltage division unit configured to create a division voltage, and an amplification unit configured to amplify a difference between the division voltage and a first reference voltage.
