Summary and Info
Nowadays, CMOS technologies account for almost 90% of all integrated circuits (ICs). This book provides an essential introduction to CMOS ICs. The contents of this book are based upon a previous publication, entitled 'MOS Ics', which was published in Dutch and English by Delta Press (Amerongen, The Netherlands, 1990) and VCH (Weinheim, Germany, 1992), respectively. This book contains state-of-the-art material, but also focuses on aspects of scaling up to and beyond 0.1 mm CMOS technologies and designs. It clearly describes the fundamental CMOS operating principles and presents substantial insight into various aspects of design, implementation and application. In contrast to other works on this topic, the book explores all associated disciplines of deep-submicron CMOS ICs, including physics, design, technology and packaging, low-power design and signal integrity. The text is based upon in-house Philips courseware, which, to date, has been completed by more than 1500 engineers. Carefully structured and enriched by hundreds of figures, photograhs and in-depth exercises, the book is well-suited for the purpose of self-study. This second edition contains some corrections and is completely updated with respect to the previous one. In the one-and-a-half years of its existance, the first edition has already been used in more than ten in-house courses. Several typing errors and the like, which showed up during these courses, have been corrected. Moreover, most of the chapters have been updated with state-of-the-art material. Numbers that describe trends and roadmaps have been updated as well, to let the contents of this book be valuable for at least another five years.
