full of in-depth insights and professional recommendation, Silicon Germanium covers all of the key elements of this know-how and its purposes. starting with a quick creation to and old viewpoint of IBM's SiGe know-how, this finished advisor fast strikes on to:
* element lots of IBM's SiGe expertise improvement programs
* discover IBM's method of equipment modeling and characterization-including predictive TCAD modeling
* speak about IBM's layout automation and sign integrity wisdom and implementation methodologies
* Illustrate layout purposes in quite a few IBM's SiGe technologies
* spotlight info of hugely built-in SiGe BiCMOS system-on-chip (SOC) design
Written for RF/analog and mixed-signal designers, CAD designers, semiconductor scholars, and foundry technique engineers around the globe, Silicon Germanium offers unique perception into the modeling and layout automation specifications for modern RF/analog and mixed-signal items, and illustrates in-depth functions that may be carried out utilizing IBM's complicated SiGe procedure applied sciences and layout kits.
"This quantity presents a very good advent to the SiGe BiCMOS know-how, from the underlying machine physics to present purposes. yet simply as very important is the window the textual content offers into the infrastructure-the strategy improvement, gadget modeling, and gear development."
Silicon Engineering Editor, EETimes
"This e-book chronicles the advance of SiGe intimately, offers an in-depth examine the modeling and layout automation specifications for making complicated purposes utilizing SiGe attainable, and illustrates such purposes as carried out utilizing IBM's technique applied sciences and layout methods."
