Digital Integrated Circuits Analysis and Design PDF
Today, there is no field of enterprise more dynamic or challenging than digital integrated circuits. Since the invention of the integrated circuit in 1958, our ability to pack transistors on a single chip of silicon has doubled roughly every 18–24 months, as described by Moore’s law. As a consequence, the functionality and performance of digital integrated circuits have improved geometrically with time. This exponential progress is unmatched in any endeavor of mankind and has revolutionized the way we live and work.
The rapid progress in digital circuitry, and the relentless scaling of MOS transistors that brought it about, have broadened the interdisciplinary reach of the fi eld. More than ever, the materials, processing, device physics, and circuit performance characteristics are inseparably linked. The original book, conceived in this interdisciplinary spirit and with a strong focus on principles, bridged a void that had existed between books on transistor electronics and those treating VLSI design and fabrication as a separate topic.
This second edition adheres to this same successful concept but is signifi cantly improved in nearly every way, with four new chapters, more than 200 new illustrations, and support provided on a dynamic website , including a section for instructors. An all-new chapter describes the integrated circuit fabrication process with detailed illustrations and discussions of the dual damascene process for copper interconnect, metal gates, and high-κ gate dielectric.
The expanded chapter on the MOS transistor includes new material on the physics of short-channel devices. CMOS circuitry has been covered in greater detail by incorporating numerous new examples and short-channel behavior. Like the fi rst edition, this book bridges the gap between courses in transistor electronics and VLSI design or fabrication. It serves as a crucial link for integrated circuit engineers, because they make the cross-disciplinary connections to guide them in more advanced work. For pedagogical reasons, this book uses SPICE level 1 models (similar to the transistor electronics courses) but introduces BSIM models that are indispensable for VLSI design.
This approach makes it possible to draw direct connections between the hand analysis and the SPICE models for the development of a strong and intuitive sense of device and circuit design. Once these connections are made, the BSIM device models can be better appreciated as incorporating many second-order and empirical corrections to the predictions of the level 1 model. Digital Integrated Circuits, Second Edition, focusing on principles and presented from a modern interdisciplinary view, should serve integrated circuits engineers from all disciplines for years to come.

About the Author
John E. Ayers grew up eight miles from an integrated circuit design and fabrication facility, where he worked as a technician and fi rst developed his passionate interest in the topic. After earning a BSEE degree from the University of Maine (Orono, Maine) in 1984, he worked as an integrated circuit test engineer for National Semiconductor (South Portland, Maine). He worked for six years at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (Troy, New York) and Philips Laboratories (Briarcliff, New York) on semiconductor material growth and characterization, earning the MSEE in 1987 and the PhDEE in 1990, both from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
Since then, he has been employed in academic research and teaching at the University of Connecticut (Storrs, Connecticut), where he has taught the course on digital integrated circuits for a number of years. He has been honored with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Best Teacher Award (2003–2004 and 2004–2005) and the School of Engineering Outstanding Teaching Award (2000–2001) and is a University of Connecticut Teaching Fellow (1999–2000).
Ayers has authored more than 60 journal and conference papers as well as three books. He is a member of Eta Kappa Nu, Tau Beta Pi, and Phi Kappa Phi and is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. He lives in Ashford, Connecticut, and enjoys running, hiking, and bicycling with his wife and three children.
