Preface to Microelectronic Circuit Design PDF

Through the study of this text, the reader will develop a comprehensive understanding of the basic techniques of modern electronic circuit design, analog and digital, discrete, and integrated.

Even though most readers may not ultimately be engaged in the design of integrated circuits (ICs) themselves, a thorough understanding of the internal circuit structure of ICs is a prerequisite to avoiding many pitfalls that prevent the effective and reliable application of integrated circuits in system design.

Digital electronics have evolved to be an extremely important area of circuit design, but it is included almost as an afterthought in many introductory electronic texts. We present more balanced coverage of analog and digital circuits.

The writing integrates the authors’ extensive industrial backgrounds in precision analog and digital design with their many years of experience in the classroom.

A broad spectrum of topics is included, and material can easily be selected to satisfy either a two-semester or three-quarter sequence in electronics.

In Microelectronic Circuit Design 5th Edition

This edition continues to update the material to achieve improved readability and accessibility to the student. In addition to general material updates, a number of specific changes have been included.

In Part, I, the concept of velocity saturation from Chapter 2 is reinforced with the addition of the Unified MOS model of Rabaey and Chandrakasan in the Field Effect Transistors chapter

And the impact of velocity limitations on digital and analog circuits is now a recurrent topic throughout Parts II and III with discussion, examples, and new problems.

Part II has had flip-flops and latches included with other basic CMOS logic circuits in Chapter 7. Flash memory has become a pervasive technology.

A significant addition to Chapter 8 is an introduction to flash memory technology and circuitry with accompanying problems. In Chapter 9, the material on T 2L has been reduced somewhat since its importance is waning, whereas a short discussion of Positive ECL (PECL) has been added.

The material that was removed is still accessible on the web. As noted above, Part III discusses biasing and distortion in the velocity saturated regime along with new problems.

A section on Darlington pairs is a new addition to Chapter 15. Improved examples of offset voltage calculations and revision of the material on the bandgap reference are included in Chapter 16.

In Chapter 17 a discussion of gate resistance in FETs now mirrors that of base resistance in the BJT. An expanded discussion of the frequency response of complimentary emitter followers has been added.

The discussion of the impact of the frequency-dependent current gain of the FET has also been enhanced to include both the input and output impedances of the source follower configuration.

Finally, the discussion of the classic and pervasive Jones Mixer has been updated. An additional example of offset voltage calculation has been added to Chapter 18 along with an enhanced discussion of MOS Op-Amp compensation.

Other important elements include: At least 35 percent revised or new problems. New PowerPoint slides are available from McGraw-Hill.

Popular digital features Connect and LearnSmart and SmartBook. The structured problem-solving approach continues throughout the examples.

The popular Electronics-in-Action features have been revised and expanded to include IEEE Societies, Historical Development of SPICE, Body Sensor Networks, Jones Mixer, Advanced CMOS Technology, Flash Memory Growth, Low Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS), and Fully Differential Amplifiers.

Chapter openers enhance the reader's understanding of historical developments in electronics. Design notes highlight important ideas that the circuit designer should remember. The World Wide Web is viewed as an integral extension of the text.

The features of the book are outlined below. The Structured Problem-Solving Approach is used throughout the examples. Electronics-in-Action features in each chapter. Chapter openers highlighting developments in the field of electronics.

Design Notes and emphasis on practical circuit design. Broad use of SPICE throughout the text and examples. Integrated treatment of device modeling in SPICE. Numerous Exercises, Examples, and Design Examples.

A large number of problems. Integrated web materials. Placing the digital portion of the book first is also beneficial to students outside of electrical engineering, particularly computer engineering or computer science majors, who may only take the first course in a sequence of electronics courses.

The material in Part II deals primarily with the internal design of logic gates and storage elements. A comprehensive discussion of NMOS and CMOS logic design is presented in Chapters 6 and 7, and a discussion of memory cells and peripheral circuits appears in Chapter 8.

Chapter 9 on bipolar logic design includes a discussion of ECL, CML, and TTL. However, the material on bipolar logic has been reduced in deference to the import of MOS technology.

This text does not include any substantial design at the logic block level, a topic that is fully covered in digital design courses.

Parts I and II of the text deal only with the large-signal characteristics of the transistors.

This allows readers to become comfortable with device behavior and i-v characteristics before they have to grasp the concept of splitting circuits into different pieces (and possibly different topologies) to perform dc and ac small-signal analyses.

(The concept of a small-signal is formally introduced in Part III, Chapter 13.) Although the treatment of digital circuits is more extensive than most texts, more than 50 percent of the material in the book, Part III, still deals with traditional analog circuits.

The analog section begins in Chapter 10 with a discussion of amplifier concepts and classic ideal op-amp circuits.

Chapter 11 presents a detailed discussion of nonideal op-amps, and the classic feedback topologies, and Chapter 12 presents a range of op-amp applications.

Chapter 13 presents a comprehensive development of the small-signal models for the diode, BJT, and FET. The hybrid-pi model and pi-models for the BJT and FET are used throughout.

Chapter 14 provides an in-depth discussion of single-stage amplifier design and multistage ac coupled amplifiers.

Coupling and bypass capacitor design are also covered in Chapter 14. Chapter 15 discusses dc-coupled multistage amplifiers and introduces prototypical op-amp circuits.

Chapter 16 continues with techniques that are important in IC design including electronic current sources, current mirrors and active loads, and the bandgap reference, and studies the classic 741 operational amplifiers.

Chapter 17 develops the high-frequency models for the transistors and presents a detailed discussion of the analysis of high-frequency circuit behavior.

The important short-circuit and open-circuit time-constant techniques for estimating the dominant low- and high-frequency poles are introduced and covered in detail in Chapter 17.

Chapter 18 presents examples of transistor feedback amplifiers and explores their stability and compensation. A discussion of high-frequency LC, negative gm and crystal oscillators concludes Chapter 18.


The design remains a difficult issue in educating engineers. The use of the well-defined problem-solving methodology presented in this text can significantly enhance the student's ability to understand issues related to design.

The design examples assist in building an understanding of the design process. Part II launches directly into the issues associated with the design of NMOS and CMOS logic gates. The effects of device and passive-element tolerances are discussed throughout the text.

In today’s world, low-power, low-voltage design, often supplied from batteries, is playing an increasingly important role. Logic design examples concentrate on lower supply levels.

The use of the computer, including MATLAB®, spreadsheets, or standard high-level languages to explore design options is a thread that continues throughout the text.

Methods for making design estimates and decisions are stressed throughout the analog portion of the text. Expressions for amplifier behavior are simplified beyond the standard hybrid-pi model expressions whenever appropriate.

For example, the expression for the voltage gain of an amplifier in most texts is simply written as |Av| = gm RL, which tends to hide the power supply voltage as the fundamental design variable.

Rewriting this expression in approximate form as gm RL ∼= 10VCC for the BJT, or gm RL ∼= VDD for the FET explicitly displays the dependence of amplifier design on the choice of power supply voltage and provides a simple first-order design estimate for the voltage gain of the common-emitter and common-source amplifiers.

The gain advantage of the BJT stage is also clear. These approximation techniques and methods for performance estimation are included as often as possible.

Comparisons and design tradeoffs between the properties of BJTs and FETs are included throughout Part III.

Worst-case and Monte-Carlo analysis techniques are introduced at the end of the first chapter. These are not topics traditionally included in undergraduate courses.

However, the ability to design circuits in the face of wide component tolerances and variations is a key component of electronic circuit design, and the design of circuits using standard components and tolerance assignment are discussed in examples and included in many problems.
