Mixed–signal design (MSD) is currently performed in industry by a select few "gurus." While MSD techniques can be found scattered throughout hard–to–digest technical papers, it is difficult for someone new to the topic to get up to speed on the subject without the guidance of a mentor and the right environment in which to gain the relevant experience.
CMOS Mixed–Signal Circuit Design, Second Edition fills the gap in the technical literature by providing a tutorial presentation of MSD techniques and integrating homework problems, netlists, and simulation examples, all of which are available for download via the book′s Web site at CMOSedu.com. Additional features of the Second Edition include:
Coverage of noise–shaping data converters (delta–sigma topologies)
Practical discussion of digital filtering and its uses in transistor–level circuit designs
Design of analog filters for both reconstruction and anti–aliasing
Transistor– and system–level design techniques and theory
Presentation of a topology for high–speed data conversion in nanometer CMOS
Complemented with practical examples and discussions, CMOS Mixed–Signal Circuit Design, Second Edition is an ideal textbook for graduate students in mixed–signal circuit design courses. It is also an equally valuable reference for professionals who want to improve their skills in this area.
