The Second Edition of this bestselling textbook has been fully updated with: A tutorial treatment of broadband circuits for both students and engineers New and unique information dealing with clock and data recovery circuits and multiplexers A chapter dedicated to burst-mode optical communications A detailed study of new circuit developments for optical transceivers An examination of recent implementations in CMOS technology This text is ideal for senior graduate students and engineers involved in high-speed circuit design for optical communications, as well as the more general field of wireline communications.
Description: Building on Fundamentals of Electronics Circuit Design, David and Donald Comers new text, Advanced Electronic Circuit Design, extends their highly focused, applied approach into the second and third semesters of the electronic circuitdesign sequence. This new text covers more advanced topics such as oscillators, power stages, digital/analog converters, and communications circuits such as mixers, and detectors. The text also includes technologies that are emerging. Advanced Electronic Circuit Design focuses exclusively on MOSFET and BJT circuits, allowing students to explore the fundamental methods of electronic circuit analysis and design in greater depth. Each type of circuit is first introduced without reference to the type of device used for implementation. This initial discussion of general principles establishes a firm foundation on which to proceed to circuits using the actual devices. Features: 1. Provides concise coverage of several important electroniccircuits that are not covered in a fundamentals textbook. 2. Focuses on MOSFET and BJT circuits, rather than offering exhaustive coverage of a wide range of devices and circuits. 3. Includes an Important Concepts summary at the beginning of each section that direct the readers attention to these key points. 4. Includes several Practical Considerations sections that relate developed theory to practical circuits.

In this manuscript various structures of Analog filters are described and built using as basic active element the Current Feedback Operational Amplifier. Firstly, the fundamental circuits used for carrying out operations on signals are described. Specifically, the properties, the symbol, the advantages and the characteristics of the current feedback operational amplifier are explained at the beginning. The circuit of the current feedback operational amplifier helps us to design lossy and lossless integrators as well as summation-subtraction circuits. We proceed to high-order filters employing the Leapfrog method, with the simulator of an inductor and finally with the wave equivalent using current feedback operational amplifiers. Some applications of the Current Feedback operational Amplifiers are presented, while examples of HSPICE program files for the circuits, which are designed, are provided.
This book teaches how to design and manufacture a testing system for the next generation of integrated circuits. ... The growing efficiency in manufacturing of semiconductor devices combined with increased speed, size and performance of integrated products puts an incredible pressure on testing and verification technology. While negligible in the past, the cost of verification for a modern semiconductor design can be as high as half of the total manufacturing cost. In order to accommodate testing requirements, modern test equipment must operate up to 100 times faster than the state-of-the-art production circuits while using technologies several generations older. ... This book teaches how to test future generations of integrated circuits by using transient currents measured at the power nodes.
