Silicon Analog Components: Device Design, Process Integration, Characterization, and Reliability

H Foreword I came home from work one night sometime in early 2001 and told my wife and kids that I had been promoted to run part of the analog business at Texas Instruments. Enables engineers to understand analog device physics, and discusses important relations between process integration, device design, component characteristics, and reliability Describes in step-by-step fashion the components that are used in analog designs, the particular characteristics of analog components, while comparing them to digital applications Explains the second-order effects in analog devices, and trade-offs between these effects when designing components and developing an integrated process for their manufacturing. High-voltage effects, such as quasi-saturation, impact ionization, self-heating, and safe operating area, are detailed. I hope you enjoy the analog world as much as I do. Finally, we express our thanks to the process development team at Dongbu HiTek for valuable discussions during the course of preparing the manuscript. Transistor current—voltage characteristics are then detailed with an emphasis on analog applications. Fundamentals integrated circuit design involves the creation of electronic components such as transistors resistors capacitors and the interconnect of these.

They have simplified some of the circuit concepts to help clarify how to build great components that enable great analog chips. Publisher: Springer-Verlag New York Inc. Basic concepts, models, and distributions are introduced, highlighting their use for specific failure mechanisms and emphasizing analog reliability considerations. . This includes direct experience in defining analog component specifications based on circuit performance and scaling requirements, integrating those components into an analog process technology, validating the reliability, and then qualifying that technology for eventual production. We like to keep things fresh. There are several books available on semiconductor physics, but few if any that have focused on the components and characteristics aimed at analog applications.
