It has long been predicted that there would soon be little need for analog circuitry because the world increasingly relies on digital signals, yet the need for good analog circuit design remains strong. Many applications have indeed replaced analog circuitry with their digital counterparts (such as digital audio). However, when digitizing physical signals, analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog converters are always needed, together with their associated anti-aliasing and reconstruction filters. In addition, new applications continue to appear; their requirements demand the use of high-performance analog front ends, such as digital communication over wireline and wireless channels and microsensor interfaces.

Also, as integrated circuits integrate more functionality, it is much more likely that at least some portion of a modern integrated circuit will include analog circuitry to interface to the real world. Moreover, the continued scaling of digital circuits has led to the emergence of new problems that require analog solutions, such as on-chip power management and the generation of stable clock signals. Although it may constitute only a small portion of total chip area, analog circuitry is often the limiting factor on overall system performance and the most difficult part of the IC to design.

As a result, a strong industrial need for analog circuit designers continues. The purpose of this book is to help develop excellent analog circuit designers by presenting a concise treatment of the wide array of knowledge required by an integrated circuit designer. This book strives to quash the notion that the design and test of high-performance analog circuits are “mystical arts.” Whereas digital design is relatively systematic, analog design appears to be much more based upon intuition and experience. Analog testing may sometimes seem to depend more upon the time of day and phase of the moon than on concrete electrical properties. But these thoughts about analog circuits usually occur when one is not familiar with the many fundamentals required to create high-performance analog circuits.

This book helps to take the mystery out of analog integrated circuit design. Although many circuits and techniques are described, the most important design principles are emphasized throughout this book. Physical and intuitive explanations are given, and although mathematical quantitative analyses of many circuits have necessarily been presented, one must not miss seeing the forest for the trees. In other words, this book attempts to present the critical underlying concepts without becoming entangled in tedious and overcomplicated circuit analyses.

This book is intended for use as a senior-undergraduate and graduate-level textbook, and as a reference for practicing engineers. To appreciate the material in this book, it is expected that the reader has had at least one basic introductory course in electronics. Specifically, the reader should be familiar with the concept of small-signal analysis and have been exposed to basic transistor circuits. In addition, the reader should be have been exposed to Fourier and Laplace transforms. Some prior knowledge of discrete-time signal processing is important for the later chapters. Although all of these topics are reviewed, background in these areas will benefit the reader significantly.

The chapters of this book have intentionally been made mostly independent so that some chapters can be covered while others are skipped. Also, it has been found to be very easy to change the order of presentation. For example, if readers have a good modelling background they might skip Chapter 1, and if their discrete-time knowledge is good Chapter 13 might he assigned only as review. We believe that such flexibility is essential in presenting textbooks for the later years of study. The material in this book can be used for a few courses. A second undergraduate course in electronics typically has frequency response and feedback, as its major topics. For such a course, Chapters 1, 3, 4 and 5 may be assigned. Some advanced modeling from Chapter 1 may be omitted and replaced with selected topics from Chapters 2 and 6 at the instructor’s discretion.

A senior-level undergraduate course in analog integrated circuits assigns Chapters 1, 2, 6, and 7, with Chapters 3–5 serving as a useful reference for those students requiring extra review. Chapter 8 may be included in any course that covers bipolar processing and devices. A senior undergraduate or entry-level graduate course on analog signal processing may use Chapters 9–14. A graduate-level course on data converters will focus upon Chapters 15–18, drawing upon the earlier chapters as needed for supplementary material. Finally, Chapter 19 may be used for a graduate level course on phase locked loops. Naturally there is considerable variability in the specific readings assigned by different instructors, particularly at the graduate level. This variability is recognized in the basic organization of the book.

A secondary audience for this book includes recently graduated electrical engineers who wish to rapidly increase their knowledge of modern analog circuit design techniques. In fact, much of the material covered in this text was originally taught and refined over many years in popular short courses offered to working engineers who realized the importance of upgrading their knowledge in analog circuit design. For this audience, we have put effort into highlighting the most important considerations when designing the various circuits. We have also tried to include modern, well-designed examples and references to primary sources for further study
