'A comprehensive and in-depth review of analog circuit layout, schematic architecture, device, power network and ESD design' This book will provide a balanced overview of analog circuit design layout, analog circuit schematic development, architecture of chips, and ESD design. It will start at an introductory level and will bring the reader right up to the state-of-the-art. Two critical design aspects for analog and power integrated circuits are combined. The first design aspect covers analog circuit design techniques to achieve the desired circuit performance. The second and main aspect presents the additional challenges associated with the design of adequate and effective ESD protection elements and schemes. A comprehensive list of practical application examples is used to demonstrate the successful combination of both techniques and any potential design trade-offs. Chapter One looks at analog design discipline, including layout and analog matching and analog layout design practices. Chapter Two discusses analog design with circuits, examining: single transistor amplifiers; multi-transistor amplifiers; active loads and more. The third chapter covers analog design layout (also MOSFET layout), before Chapters Four and Five discuss analog design synthesis. The next chapters introduce the reader to analog-digital mixed signal design synthesis, analog signal pin ESD networks, and analog ESD power clamps. Chapter Nine, the last chapter, covers ESD design in analog applications. Clearly describes analog design fundamentals (circuit fundamentals) as well as outlining the various ESD implications Covers a large breadth of subjects and technologies, such as CMOS, LDMOS, BCD, SOI, and thick body SOI Establishes an 'ESD analog design' discipline that distinguishes itself from the alternative ESD digital design focus Focuses on circuit and circuit design applications Assessible, with the artwork and tutorial style of the ESD book series PowerPoint slides are available for university faculty members Even in the world of digital circuits, analog and power circuits are two very important but under-addressed topics, especially from the ESD aspect. Dr. Voldman's new book will serve as an essential and practical guide to the greater IC community. With high practical and academic values this book is a 'bible' for professionals, graduate students, device and circuit designers for investigating the physics of ESD and for product designs and testing. Electrostatic discharge (ESD) continues to impact semiconductor components and systems as technologies scale from micro- to nanoelectronics. ESD Analog Circuits and Design provides a clear picture of layout and design of analog and power applications for protection from electrostatic discharge (ESD), electrical overstress (EOS), and latchup phenomena from a generalist perspective. It provides an illuminating insight into the layout and design of analog circuitry and digital-analog system-on-chip (SOC) followed by examples in specific technologies, circuits, and chips. The book is unique in covering both the analog design practices and ESD design synthesis to provide optimum solutions in advanced technologies. Look inside for extensive coverage on: - Fundamentals of analog design practices and how they influence the ESD design circuitry, from integration, synthesis, and layout, such as symmetry, matching, interdigitation, and common centroid techniques; - Examples of basic analog and power applications, including differential receivers, comparators, error amplifiers, and current mirrors; - Cosynthesizing of semiconductor chip architecture and floorplanning for analog and mixed signal applications for cores and periphery; - Analysis of digital-to-analog interdomain signal line and pin-to-pin ESD failure mechanisms; - Examples of ESD and EOS issues in state-of-the-art analog and power technologies, including CMOS, bipolar, LDMOS, and BCD, high-voltage CMOS (HVCMOS), and ultra-high-voltage (UHV CMOS); - ESD and EOS program documents, checklists, cookbooks, and release processes; and - ESD design rule checking (DRC), LVS, and ERC electronic design automation (EDA) for analog-digital mixed signal design. 'ESD Analog Circuits and Design' is a continuation of the author's series of books on ESD protection. It is an essential reference for ESD, circuit, and semiconductor engineers as well as for layout and design, floorplanning, and ground rule checking and verification developers who are involved in the manufacturing and design process of semiconductor chips. It is also useful for graduate and undergraduate students in electrical engineering and semiconductor sciences and can be used on course materials involving ESD and EOS in devices, circuits, chips, and systems. This book offers a useful insight into the issues that confront modern technology as we enter the nanoelectronic era.
