Editorial Reviews


"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." ( Reference and Research Book News, February 2011) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover


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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new Edition of the Bible May 1, 2001
I used this book in Grad school almost 20 years ago and still use it. This is the bible for analog design and is the one most widely used for its content and deservedly so. What the book really deserves credit for is teaching the manner of approaching circuit design by back of the envelope calculation. They teach you how to approximate via hand calculation, a very useful skill. They teach you how to become intuitive with circuits, this is the key. Before this book I had been asked to calculate the output impedance of a cascode mirror as an undergrad, it took about 5 pages and resulted in an expression of about 10 terms. Grey and Meyer shows you how to pop this out of a simple expression that contains only 3-4 terms and how to easily recognise the largest term. That is the beauty of this book, it teaches you how to become intuitive in transistor circuit analysis. The coverage is very good wrt the topics covered, most of the major issues are covered, but it is not encyclopedic. The problems are good and not terribly difficult, they are geared towards nailing down the material. The senior authors are both world renowned analog designers and both Fellows of the IEEE. The junior authors are also well known in this field. The writing is clear and to the point and the book has very few typos. There are other good analog IC books coming out now those by Lee, Allen, Razavi, and Johns have made it onto my shelf, but This is the Bible!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sets the standard for analog design texts. June 12, 2000
This text book should form the core for your analog design library. It has been the main text for two graduate level courses I have taken in analog I.C. design. Treats BJT circuits a little more thoroughly than CMOS; but goes in-depth for both. Excellent reference and textbook; but definitely not a self-study guide (and this is the main reason I did not give it 5 stars).

5.0 out of 5 stars You got to study the book if you want to nail Analog tech. September 17, 2004
First of all, this book is not a novel, so don't read it when you are tired or bored. You will definitely fall into sleep!

This is the book you need to read if you have decided you are going to STUDY Analog.

I bought this book because my friend recommended this book as a good analog reference. Later on , it turns out I have two classes use this book as a textbook.

This book is not easy to read. But analog itself is not an easy subject. With my professors' guidence, I was able to understand the book. I was amazed that the amount of material I have learned from this book. This book teachs you the material that a lot of other books skips. For example, offset voltage, most of other books will only describe in one or two paragraph. But this book explained in many sections. And offset voltage is a very important concept in Analog field.

A lot of other students complained the book covers too much stuff. It has fabrication, which can be one course. It has bipolar, CMOS, which can be course. It has feedback system, which can be another control system class. But these are essential concepts you need to know about analog IC. The title of the book is not

Definitely a great book for beginners as well as for experienced engineers! I find the following chapters extremely useful for my design work: Chapter 2, 6, 7, 9, 11 and 12. Nowadays, many analog designers are required to have good understanding of high-frequency (e.g. RF) behaviors of the circuits. You will get a feeling of what this trend means while you're reading this textbook. Buy it, read it carefully, and sell it to someone in a lower price when you've done!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tops on the subject December 12, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Required reading, I would think, for anyone in the business, or studying to get into the business, of design & development of analog IC's. If you haven't already been introduced to this book, better make it a part of your library.
You'll find good stuff on:
Large & small signal BJ & MOS transistor models,
An informative chap. on IC technology & construction,
Good chap. on current mirrors & active loads,
Several chaps. on amps. including a detailed analysis of 741,
Good info. on frequency response & analysis of IC opamps.,
Chaps. on feedback & stability of IC opamps,
A lot of attention to MOS technology throughout,
Loads of transistor equations & useful approximations.
Also there's other material which should interest anyone in analog circuit design, including discrete design. There's even an interesting chap. on circuit noise, which for me had been a subject with about as much sex appeal as Thermodynamics.
Be forwarned, this isn't for the novice circuit designer. It's a rather rough trudge to make your way through the book. But as far as I'm capable of critically reviewing, this is a very well written book with very few errors (4th edition). There're a few quirks here & there. For example they introduce their own symbols for MOS transistors (as if we don't have enough), over play SPICE as "an integral part of many examples", & make stability analysis witht Bode plots (Bode not credited) more complicated than need be. However, these are trivial when compared to the overall work.
I would therefore give the authors a resounding 5 stars. However, I can't do so for the version of the book which I received. I bought the book for self-study purposes. I was very disappointed to find 20 to 40 problems @ the end of each chap.
