    Circuits for Emerging Technologies Beyond CMOS

    New exciting opportunities are abounding in the field of body area networks, wireless communications, data networking, and optical imaging. In response to these developments, top-notch international experts in industry and academia present Circuits at the Nanoscale: Communications, Imaging, and Sensing. This volume, unique in both its scope and its focus, addresses the state-of-the-art in integrated circuit design in the context of emerging systems.

    A must for anyone serious about circuit design for future technologies, this book discusses emerging materials that can take system performance beyond standard CMOS. These include Silicon on Insulator (SOI), Silicon Germanium (SiGe), and Indium Phosphide (InP). Three-dimensional CMOS integration and co-integration with Microelectromechanical (MEMS) technology and radiation sensors are described as well. Topics in the book are divided into comprehensive sections on emerging design techniques, mixed-signal CMOS circuits, circuits for communications, and circuits for imaging and sensing.

    Written by top-notch experts,  Circuits at the Nanoscale: Communications, Imaging, and Sensing addresses the state of the art in CMOS circuit design in the context of system opportunities. This book explores materials such as SiGe, carbon nanotubes, and quantum dots that can potentially take system performance beyond traditional CMOS. Because CMOS circuit implementation is key to understanding emerging technologies, several chapters focus on this area, including low power circuit implementations for microprocessor applications and circuit implementations for biomedical space. The text also discusses such topics as digital radio processing for wireless communications and circuits for medical imaging.
