Scope: It is increasingly important in microelectronics to achieve low-cost manufacturing with higher performance and quality.
This book brings together innovative modelling, simulation and design techniques in CMOS, SOI, GaAs and BJT to achieve successful high-yield manufacture for low-power, high-speed and reliable-by-design analogue and mixed-mode integrated systems. Realistic examples from industry and academia combine process, device and design knowledge with affordable tools exploiting principles for robust design and low cost. A number of emerging technologies -- particularly for very low voltage operation -- and design techniques are addressed, including the design of both sensors and processing for intelligent sensor systems. The text is backed up throughout by application examples and references to literature (including Internet) resources.
