The microelectronics industry is becoming increasingly dependent on SOI CMOS VLSI devices and circuits. This book is the first to address this important topic with a practical focus on devices and circuits. It provides an up-to-date survey of the current knowledge regarding SOI device behaviors and describes state-of-the-art low-voltage CMOS VLSI analog and digital circuit techniques.
Low-Voltage SOI CMOS VLSI Devices and Circuits covers the entire field, from basic concepts to the most advanced ideas. Topics include:
* SOI device behavior: fundamental and floating body effects, hot carrier effects, sensitivity, reliability, self-heating, breakdown, ESD, dual-gate devices, accumulation-mode devices, short channel effects, and narrow channel effects
* Low-voltage SOI digital circuits: floating body effects, DRAM, SRAM, static logic, dynamic logic, gate array, CPU, frequency divider, and DSP
* Low-voltage SOI analog circuits: op amps, filters, ADC/DAC, sigma-delta modulators, RF circuits, VCO, mixers, low-noise amplifiers, and high-temperature circuits
With over 300 references to the state of the art and over 300 important figures on low-voltage SOI CMOS devices and circuits, this volume serves as an authoritative, reliable resource for engineers designing these circuits in high-tech industries.
