A transistor-level, design-intensive overview of high speed and high frequency monolithic integrated circuits for wireless and broadband systems from 2 GHz to 200 GHz, this comprehensive text covers high-speed, RF, mm-wave and optical fiber circuits using nanoscale CMOS, SiGe BiCMOS and III-V technologies. Step-by-step design methodologies, end-of-chapter problems and practical simulation and design projects are provided, making this an ideal resource for senior undergraduate and graduate courses in circuit design. With an emphasis on device-circuit topology interaction and optimization, it gives circuit designers and students alike an in-depth understanding of device structures and process limitations affecting circuit performance.show more

Review quote

'... the ideal companion for circuit designers wishing to grasp the challenges of circuit design above RF ... takes the reader from system specification down to the transistor and presents the circuit analysis that underlies every RF circuit designer's intuition.' James Buckwalter, University of California, San Diego 'Both experienced designers and newcomers in the field will appreciate this book ... many detailed design recipes and tricks - often with a link to the underlying IC technologies - that are seldom found in related textbooks.' Piet Wambacq, University of Brussels and IMEC '... a unique encyclopaedic 'dictionary' for an in-depth understanding of high-speed and high-frequency microelectronic design. Original, dense of details, clear and focused on the modern design challenges ... the first book of a new class with a profound look at the road ahead.' Domenico Zito, University College Cork 'Destined to become a classic reference in high frequency RFICs ... comprehensive coverage of a vast array of integrated circuits and systems ... exceptional tutorial value ... presents the state-of-the-art in microwave and millimeter-wave systems-on-chip.' Gabriel M. Rebeiz, University of California, San Diego '... [an] easy-to-read book on the subject of high-frequency circuits ... Highly recommended. Graduate students, researchers/faculty, and practicing engineers working with high-frequency applications.' L. McLauchlan, Choice 'If I was a professor looking for a text to use in teaching a microwave integrated circuits course, I would pick this book. When I get asked where to go to learn about all this microwave stuff, Voinigescu's book will be on my shortlist ...' IEEE Microwave Magazineshow more
