Preface to Microelectronic Circuit Design PDF

Through the study of this text, the reader will develop a comprehensive understanding of the basic techniques of modern electronic circuit design, analog and digital, discrete, and integrated.

Even though most readers may not ultimately be engaged in the design of integrated circuits (ICs) themselves, a thorough understanding of the internal circuit structure of ICs is a prerequisite to avoiding many pitfalls that prevent the effective and reliable application of integrated circuits in system design.

Digital electronics have evolved to be an extremely important area of circuit design, but it is included almost as an afterthought in many introductory electronic texts. We present more balanced coverage of analog and digital circuits.

The writing integrates the authors’ extensive industrial backgrounds in precision analog and digital design with their many years of experience in the classroom.

A broad spectrum of topics is included, and material can easily be selected to satisfy either a two-semester or three-quarter sequence in electronics.

In Microelectronic Circuit Design by Jaeger and Blalock

This edition continues to update the material to achieve improved readability and accessibility to the student. In addition to general material updates, a number of specific changes have been included in Parts I and II, SolidState Electronics and Devices, and Digital Electronics, respectively.

A new closed-form solution to four-resistor MOSFET biasing is introduced as well as an improved iterative strategy for diode Q-point analysis. JFET devices are important in analog design and have been reintroduced at the end of Chapter 4.

Simulation-based logic gate scaling is introduced in the MOS logic chapters, and an enhanced discussion of noise margin is included as a new Electronics-in-Action (EIA) feature. Current-mode logic (CML) is heavily used in high-performance SiGe ICs, and a CML section is added to the Bipolar Logic chapter.

This revision contains major reorganization and revision of the analog portion (Part III) of the text. The introductory amplifier material (old Chapter 10) is now introduced in a “just-in-time” basis in the three op-amp chapters.

Specific sections have been added with qualitative descriptions of the operation of basic op-amp circuits and each transistor amplifier configuration as well as the transistors themselves. Feedback analysis using two-ports has been eliminated from Chapter 18 in favor of a consistent loop-gain analysis approach to all feedback configurations that begin in the op-amp chapters.

The important successive voltage and current injection technique for finding loop-gain are now included in Chapter 11, and Blackman’s theorem is utilized to find input and output resistances of closed-loop amplifiers. 

SPICE examples have been modified to utilize three- and five-terminal built-in op-amp models. Chapter 10, Analog Systems, and Ideal Operational Amplifiers provide an introduction to amplifiers and covers the basic ideal op-amp circuits.

Chapter 11, Characteristics and Limitations of Operational Amplifiers, covers the limitations of nonideal op amps including frequency response and stability and the four classic feedback circuits including series-shunt, shunt-shunt, shunt-series, and series-series feedback amplifiers.

Chapter 12, Operational Amplifier Applications, collects together all the op-amp applications including multistage amplifiers, filters, A/D and D/A converters, sinusoidal oscillators, and multivibrators.

Redundant material in transistor amplifier chapters 13 and 14 have been merged or eliminated wherever possible.

Other additions to the analog material include discussion of relations between MOS logic inverters and common-source amplifiers, distortion reduction through feedback, the relationship between step response and phase margin, NMOS differential amplifiers with NMOS load transistors, the regulated cascade current source, and the Gilbert multiplier.

Because of the renaissance and pervasive use of RF circuits, the introductory section on RF amplifiers, now in Chapter 17, has been expanded to include shunt-peaked and tuned amplifiers, and the use of inductive degeneration in common-source amplifiers.

New material on mixers includes passive, active, single- and double-balanced mixers and the widely used Gilbert mixer. Chapter 18, Transistor Feedback Amplifiers and Oscillators, presents examples of transistor feedback amplifiers and transistor oscillator implementations.

The transistor oscillator section has been expanded to include a discussion of negative resistance in oscillators and the negative Gm oscillator cell. Several other important enhancements include: 

  • SPICE support on the web now includes examples in NI Multisim™ software in addition to PSpice®.
  • At least 35 percent revised or new problems.
  • New PowerPoint® slides are available from McGraw-Hill. 
  • A group of tested design problems is also available.

The Structured Problem Solving Approach continues to be utilized throughout the examples. We continue to expand the popular Electronics-in-Action Features with the addition of Diode Rectifier as an AM Demodulator; High-Performance CMOS Technologies

A Second Look at Noise Margins (graphical flip-flop approach); Offset Voltage, Bias Current and CMRR Measurement; Sample-and-Hold Circuits; Voltage Regulator with Series Pass Transistor; Noise Factor, Noise Figure and Minimum Detectable Signal

SeriesParallel and Parallel-Series Network Transformations; and Passive Diode Ring Mixer. Chapter Openers enhance the reader’s understanding of historical developments in electronics. Design notes highlight important ideas that the circuit designer should remember.

The World Wide Web is viewed as an integral extension of the text, and a wide range of supporting materials and resource links are maintained and updated on the McGraw-Hill website (www.mhhe.com/jaeger). The features of the book are outlined below.

The Structured Problem-Solving Approach is used throughout the examples. Electronics-in-Action features in each chapter. Chapter openers highlighting developments in the field of electronics. Design Notes and emphasis on practical circuit design.

Broad use of SPICE throughout the text and examples. Integrated treatment of device modeling in SPICE. Numerous Exercises, Examples, and Design Examples. A large number of new problems. Integrated web materials. Continuously updated web resources and links.

Placing the digital portion of the book first is also beneficial to students outside of electrical engineering, particularly computer engineering or computer science majors, who may only take the first course in a sequence of electronics courses.

The material in Part II deals primarily with the internal design of logic gates and storage elements. A comprehensive discussion of NMOS and CMOS logic design is presented in Chapters 6 and 7, and a discussion of memory cells and peripheral circuits appears in Chapter 8.

Chapter 9 on bipolar logic design includes a discussion of ECL, CML, and TTL. However, the material on bipolar logic has been reduced in deference to the import of MOS technology.

This text does not include any substantial design at the logic block level, a topic that is fully covered in digital design courses. Parts I and II of the text deal only with the large-signal characteristics of the transistors.

This allows readers to become comfortable with device behavior and i-v characteristics before they have to grasp the concept of splitting circuits into different pieces (and possibly different topologies) to perform dc and ac small-signal analyses.

(The concept of a small-signal is formally introduced in Part III, Chapter 13.) Although the treatment of digital circuits is more extensive than most texts, more than 50 percent of the material in the book, Part III, still deals with traditional analog circuits.

The analog section begins in Chapter 10 with a discussion of amplifier concepts and classic ideal op-amp circuits. Chapter 11 presents a detailed discussion of nonideal op-amps, and Chapter 12 presents a range of op-amp applications.

Chapter 13 presents a comprehensive development of the small-signal models for the diode, BJT, and FET. The hybrid-pi model and pi-models for the BJT and FET are used throughout.

Chapter 14 provides an in-depth discussion of single-stage amplifier design and multistage ac coupled amplifiers. Coupling and bypass capacitor design are also covered in Chapter 14. Chapter 15 discusses dc-coupled multistage amplifiers and introduces prototypical op-amp circuits.

Chapter 16 continues with techniques that are important in IC design and studies the classic 741 operational amplifiers. Chapter 17 develops the high-frequency models for the transistors and presents a detailed discussion of the analysis of high-frequency circuit behavior.

The final chapter presents examples of transistor feedback amplifiers. Discussion of feedback amplifier stability and oscillators conclude the text.
