"...provides a comprehensive guide to designing CMOS ICs...by using the software, the book becomes a truly interactive learning experience." (Electronic Design Online, June 14, 2005)
"…offering a vital contemporary view of a wide range of analog/digital circuit blocks, the BSIM model, data converter architectures, and much more." (IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Newsletter, October 2004)
From the Back Cover
"A refreshing industrial flavor. Design concepts are presented as they are needed for 'just-in-time' learning. Simulating and designing circuits using SPICE is emphasized with literally hundreds of examples. Very few textbooks contain as much detail as this one. Highly recommended!"
—Paul M. Furth, New Mexico State University
"This book builds a solid knowledge of CMOS circuit design from the ground up. With coverage of process integration, layout, analog and digital models, noise mechanisms, memory circuits, references, amplifiers, PLLs/DLLs, dynamic circuits, and data converters, the text is an excellent reference for both experienced and novice designers alike."
—Tyler J. Gomm, Design Engineer, Micron Technology, Inc.
"The second edition builds upon the success of the first with new chapters that cover additional material such as oversampled converters and non-volatile memories. This is becoming the de facto standard textbook to have on every analog and mixed-signal designer's bookshelf."
—Joe Walsh, Design Engineer, AMI Semiconductor
CMOS circuits from design to implementation
CMOS: Circuit Design, Layout, and Simulation, Second Edition covers the practical design of both analog and digital integrated circuits, offering a vital contemporary view of a wide range of analog/digital circuit blocks, the BSIM model, data converter architectures, and much more. This edition takes a two-path approach to the topics; design techniques are developed for both long- and short-channel CMOS technologies and then compared. The results are multidimensional explanations that allow readers deep insight into the design process. Features include:
- Integrated-circuit layout software for Windows designed by David Boyce
- Updated materials to reflect CMOS technology's movement into nanometer sizes
- Discussions on phase- and delay-locked loops, mixed-signal circuits, data converters, and circuit noise
- More than 1,000 figures, 200 examples, and over 500 end-of-chapter problems
- In-depth coverage of both analog and digital circuit-level design techniques
- Real-world process parameters and design rules
- Associated Web site (cmosedu.com) provides examples, solutions, and SPICE simulation netlists
