choked with in-depth insights and specialist recommendation, Silicon Germanium covers all of the key features of this know-how and its functions. starting with a short creation to and ancient viewpoint of IBM's SiGe expertise, this complete consultant fast strikes on to:
* aspect lots of IBM's SiGe expertise improvement programs
* discover IBM's method of machine modeling and characterization-including predictive TCAD modeling
* talk 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 procedure engineers around the world, Silicon Germanium offers targeted perception into the modeling and layout automation specifications for modern RF/analog and mixed-signal items, and illustrates in-depth purposes that may be applied utilizing IBM's complicated SiGe technique applied sciences and layout kits.
"This quantity offers an exceptional creation to the SiGe BiCMOS know-how, from the underlying gadget physics to present functions. yet simply as very important is the window the textual content offers into the infrastructure-the approach improvement, equipment modeling, and gear development."
Silicon Engineering Editor, EETimes
"This booklet chronicles the improvement 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 strategy applied sciences and layout methods."
