CMOS; circuit design, layout, and simulation, 3d ed.

CMOS (complementary metal oxide semiconductor) technology is likely to continue to dominate for the next 25 years because of its low cost, reliability, and scalability, according to Baker, who has some 200 circuit design patents either granted or pending, plus a 20-year career as an educator and an engineer. Readers are assumed to have knowledge of linear circuits, microelectronics, and digital logic design, but this book has been designed deliberately to be useful to an eclectic audience. It has plenty of examples, problems, and practical discussions for students; in-depth coverage of topics such as noise considerations and sensing using delta-sigma modulation, for researchers; and plenty of immediately useful design and layout examples (with explanations), for working engineers. For this third edition, coverage of computer-aided design has been moved to the book's webpage, where also can be found solutions to end-of-chapter problems and downloadable designs for simulation and modification. Coverage has been extended to include the implementation of data converters and feedback amplifiers, among other topics.
