A bootstrap circuit is a kind of charge pump. I know bootstrap circuits 
from audio amps and mosfet drivers. It is basically a capacitor 
connected from the output of the driver to the positive supply rail 
(after a diode). This enhances the output voltage swing in that way that 
the circuit can drive a N-channel mosfet in the pull-up part of the 
output driver.
