Do you want to deepen your understanding of complex systems and design integrated circuits more quickly? Learn how with this step-by-step guide that shows, from first principles, how to employ estimation techniques to analyze and solve complex problems in IC design using a simplified modeling approach. Applications are richly illustrated using real-world examples from across IC design, from simple circuit theory, to the electromagnetic effects and high frequency design, and systems such as data converters and phase-locked loops. Basic concepts like inductance and capacitance are related to one other and other RF phenomena inside a modern chip, enhancing understanding without the need for simulators. Use the easy-to-follow models presented to start designing your own products, from inductors and amplifiers to more complex systems. Whether you are an early-career professional or researcher, graduate student, or established IC engineer looking to reduce your reliance on commercial software packages, this is essential reading.Read more

'The estimation analysis techniques in this book open up a new and unique approach to gaining a deeper understanding of circuits, thus accelerating the optimization and design of a broad range of circuits, which is a critical skill in the fast paced IC design world where time to market is crucial to success.' Joel King, Skyworks Solutions, Inc.See more reviews
'Developing engineering solutions benefits greatly from the proverbial back of the envelope analysis. This book does an excellent job of not only providing a great reference to a number of estimating techniques (limitations clearly identified) for a number of key topics. It also resurrects the concept of engineering estimation, to quickly evaluate ideas and drive to useful conclusions without losing context. This art form is dwindling as today's engineers continue to depend on (very capable) computer simulators, slowing the development of intuition and hence innovation.' Claudio Anzil, Innophase Inc.
