Summary and Info
This tenth volume of Analog Circuit Design concentrates on 3 topics: 1. Scalable Analog Circuits, 2. High-Speed D/A Converters, and 3. RF Power Amplifiers. Each topic is covered by 6 papers, written by internationally recognized experts on that topic. These papers have a tutorial nature aimed at improving the design of analog circuits. The book is divided into three parts: Part I, Scalable Analog Circuit Design describes in 6 papers issues of: scalable high-speed design, scalable high-resolution mixed-mode ADC and OpAmp design, scalable high-voltage design for XDSL, scalability of wire-line front ends, reusable IP analog design, and porting CAD analog design. Part II, High-Speed D/A Converters describes in 6 papers issues of: Introduction to high-speed D/A converter design, retargetable 12-bit 200-MHz CMOS current steering design, high-speed CMOS D/A converters for upstream cable applications, static and dynamic performance limitations, the linearity challenge of D/A converters for communications, and a 400-MHz, 10-bit charge-domain CMOS D/A converter for low-spurious frequency synthesis. Part III, RF Power Amplifiers describes in 6 papers issues of: system aspects, overview and trade-offs, linear transmitter architectures, GaAs microwave SSPAs, Monolithic transformer-coupling in Si-bipolar, and RF power amplifier design in CMOS.
