Book Description

Integrated circuits (ICs) don't always work the first time. Many things can and do go wrong in analog circuit designs. There are a number of common errors that often require costly chip redesign and refabrication, all of which can be avoided when designers are aware of the pitfalls. To realize success, IC designers need a complete toolbox-a toolbox filled not only with a solid background in electronics, design concepts and analysis skills, but also with the most valuable tool of all: experience.

Analog BiCMOS Design offers IC design engineers the learning equivalent to decades of practical experience. Culled from the careers of practicing engineers, it presents the most effective methods and the pitfalls most frequently encountered in the design of biCMOS integrated circuits. Accessible to anyone who has taken a course in electronics, this book covers the basic design of bandgap voltage references, current mirrors, amplifiers, and comparators. It reviews common design errors often overlooked and offers design techniques used to remedy those problems.

With its complete coverage of basic circuit building blocks, full details of common design pitfalls, and a compendium of design and layout problems and solutions, Analog BiCMOS Design is the perfect reference for IC designers and engineers, fledgling and experienced alike. Read it to reinforce your background, browse it for ideas on avoiding pitfalls, and when you run into a problem, use it to find a solution.
