"Intended both for students and as a reference for working engineers, the fifth edition of this popular engineering textbook is updated to include discussions of newly available integrated circuits as well as general advances in the field. Drawn from material taught to high level seniors and graduate students at the University of California's Berkeley and Davis engineering departments, the work covers such topics as the physics of bipolar and MOS transistors, the technology of integrated circuit (IC) fabrication and the design and uses of operational amplifiers as well as many advanced topics in IC principles and design."

THE CLASSIC APPROACH TO CUTTING-EDGE ANALYSIS AND DESIGN
In this Fourth Edition of ANALYSIS AND DESIGN OF ANALOG INTEGRATED CIRCUITS, Paul Gray and Robert Meyer have teamed up with two new coauthors-Paul Hurst and Stephen Lewis-to provide a current, comprehensive and in-depth treatment of analog integrated circuit analysis and design. The authors combine bipolar, CMOS, and BICMOS analog integrated-circuit design into a unified presentation that stresses their commonalties and highlights their differences. Readers will gain valuable insights into the relative strengths and weaknesses of these important technologies.
The Fourth Edition features new and expanded coverage of several key technologies and techniques, including increased emphasis on CMOS circuits in Chapters 3-7; a new chapter covering fully differential amplifiers and common-mode feedback circuit analysis using return ration in addition to the two-part feedback analysis; and new coverage of two-stage MOS op-amp compensation, single-stage op amps, and nested Miller compensation.

- Coverage of cutting-edge topics. The new edition features more advanced CMOS device electronics, including short-channel effects, weak inversion and impact ionization.
- State-of-the-art IC processes. The text shows how modern integrated circuits are fabricated, including recent issues like heterojunction bipolar transistors, copper interconnect, and low permittivity dielectric materials.
- Unified treatment of bipolar and CMOS circuits. This format takes readers through each step in designing real-world amplifiers in silicon.
- Open-ended design problems. A number of open-ended design problems, included in the problem sets, exposes the reader to real-world situations where a range of circuit solutions may be found to satisfy a given performance specification.
- Extensive use of SPICE. SPICE is an integral part of many examples in the problem sets.
