The development of large–scale integrated systems–on–a–chip has had a dramatic effect on circuit design methodology. Escalating requirements for low–power, high–chip density circuits and systems have resulted in increasingly complex Bipolar, CMOS and BICMOS technologies. In order to design cost–effective and reliable systems a thorough understanding of the relationship between the individual components and their impact on the performance of the integrated system is required. Bridging the gap between semiconductor device physics and practical circuit design, this book:
  • Introduces the basic behaviour of semiconductor components for integrated circuit devices and their influence on digital, analog and memory circuits.
  • Covers the design of both digital and analog circuits in CMOS and BiCMOS technologies.
  • Features a wide range of topics including: field effect transistor design, power devices, MOS transistor modelling and the fundamentals of digital CMOS circuit design through to MOS memory architecture and design.
  • Provides readers with the methodology by which useful equations for the estimation of transistor geometries and circuit behaviour can be deduced.

Combining coverage of semiconductor physics, digital VLSI design and analog integrated circuits in one volume, this book will appeal to practising engineers, circuit designers and physicists working in IC–production, product engineering, quality management and quality testing. Postgraduate students in microelectronics, electrical and computer engineering will also find this book a useful reference.
