|About the Book|
Very fast advances in IC technologies have brought new challenges into the physical design of integrated systems. The emphasis on system performance in present-day applications requires timing and power constraints to be considered at each stage of physical design. The size of ICs is decreasing continually, and the density of power dissipated in the circuits is growing rapidly. Mixed Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems presents a variety of topics in the area of microelectronics design and microsystems, written by experts in technology, modelling, analog and digital filters design, signal processing, neural network design, thermal design, design methodologies, electromagnetic compatibility, sensors and actuators, advanced testing methods and reliability, power devices and Smart-Power modules. The book is divided into five parts: Analog Circuit Design Power Devices and Thermal Aspects Microsystems and Neural Networks Design Methodologies Advanced Trends in Microelectronics Education Mixed Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems serves as an excellent resource for engineers involved in VLSI circuits design and may also be used as a text for advanced courses on the subject.
