Microelettronica 3 ed , Richard C. Jaeger Travis N. Blalock , MCGraw Hill 2009
Microelettronica is a textbook on microelectronic circuit design, written by Richard C. Jaeger and Travis N. Blalock, and published by McGraw-Hill in 2009. The book covers both analog and digital circuits, as well as discrete and integrated devices, with a balanced and comprehensive approach. The book is intended for undergraduate and graduate students of electrical engineering, as well as for professionals and researchers in the field of microelectronics.
Contents of the book
The book is divided into six parts, each containing several chapters and appendices. The parts are:
Part I: Devices and Basic Circuits, which introduces the fundamentals of semiconductor devices, such as diodes, transistors, and MOSFETs, and their applications in basic circuits, such as amplifiers, biasing, and feedback.
Part II: Analog Circuits, which covers the design and analysis of analog circuits, such as operational amplifiers, filters, oscillators, modulators, and data converters.
Part III: Digital Circuits, which focuses on the principles and techniques of digital circuit design, such as logic gates, combinational and sequential circuits, memory devices, and microprocessors.
Part IV: Integrated Circuit Fabrication and Layout, which explains the processes and methods of integrated circuit fabrication, such as lithography, doping, etching, and metallization, and the layout rules and tools for designing integrated circuits.
Part V: Advanced Topics in Analog Integrated Circuits, which explores some advanced topics in analog integrated circuit design, such as noise analysis, frequency response, stability, distortion, and power management.
Part VI: Advanced Topics in Digital Integrated Circuits, which discusses some advanced topics in digital integrated circuit design, such as high-speed circuits, low-power circuits, testing and verification, and programmable logic devices.
