Fundamentals of microelectronics relates modern circuit design from a practical perspective
Article Type: Industry news From: Microelectronics International, Volume 25, Issue 2.
Research and markets has announced the addition of “Fundamentals of microelectronics, 1st edition” to their offering.
Designed to build a strong foundation in both design and analysis of electronic circuits, Razavi teaches conceptual understanding and mastery of the material by using modern examples to motivate and prepare students for advanced courses and their careers. Razavi's unique problem-solving framework enables students to deconstruct complex problems into components that they are familiar with which builds the confidence and intuitive skills needed for success.
Razavi relates modern circuit design from a practical perspective, combined with a sense of excitement that captures the importance of microelectronics today. He first introduces readers to the big picture of microelectronics, followed by discussions on diode models and circuits, bipolar circuits, and MOS circuits. Then he provides insight into an operational amplifier as a black box, cascades and current mirrors, frequency response, analogue filters and more.
