Mixed-Signal Circuits offersa thoroughly modern treatment of integrated circuit design in the context of mixed-signal applications. Featuring chapters authored by leading experts from industry and academia, this book:

  • Discusses signal integrity and large-scale simulation, verification, and testing
  • Demonstrates advanced design techniques that enable digital circuits and sensitive analog circuits to coexist without any compromise
  • Describes the process technology needed to address the performance challenges associated with developing complex mixed-signal circuits
  • Deals with modeling topics, such as reliability, variability, and crosstalk, that define pre-silicon design methodology and trends, and are the focus of companies involved in wireless applications
  • Develops methods to move analog into the digital domain quickly, minimizing and eliminating common trade-offs between performance, power consumption, simulation time, verification, size, and cost
  • Details approaches for very low-power performances, high-speed interfaces, phase-locked loops (PLLs), voltage-controlled oscillators (VCOs), analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), and biomedical filters
  • Delineates the respective parts of a full system-on-chip (SoC), from the digital parts to the baseband blocks, radio frequency (RF) circuitries, electrostatic-discharge (ESD) structures, and built-in self-test (BIST) architectures

Mixed-Signal Circuits explores exciting opportunities in wireless communications and beyond. The book is a must for anyone involved in mixed-signal circuit design for future technologies.


"… one of the most modern books in the context of mixed-signal applications. This book addresses the state of the art in integrated circuit design, covering a wide range of topics, from wireless communications, simulation speed up, and testing techniques to substrate crosstalk, reliability, variability, low-power design. and high-speed interfaces. The book is written by top international experts coming from both the industry and the academia. Really hot topics are addressed, making this book a must for anyone involved in mixed-mode, analog, and RF integrated circuit design and signal processing applications."
