About this book
This book is written for students, practicing engineers and scientists. It covers all important aspects of analog and digital circuit design.
Part I describes semiconductor devices and their behavior with respect to the models used in circuit simulation. Basic analog circuits are analyzed in four steps: large-signal transfer characteristic, small-signal response, noise and distortion. The treatment of digital circuits starts with the internal circuitry of logic gates and continues with combinatorial and sequential circuit design.
Part II describes low frequency circuit design in various applications using operational amplifiers. The circuitry of A/D and D/A converters and their use in different signal sampling scenarios are considered. This part also presents the theory and design of analog and digital filters.
Part III describes circuits for analog and digital communications over wireless channels. It includes comprehensive background information in terms of analog and digital modulations, radio frequency transmitters and receivers. The high-frequency behavior of passive components and the design of high-frequency filters, matching circuits, amplifiers and mixers are presented.
