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, photographs and in-depth exercises, the book is well-suited for the purpose of self-study.
