Analog and Digital VLSI Circuit Design

The purpose of Analog and Digital VLSI Circuit Design is to provide in a single volume a comprehensive reference work covering the broad spectrum of VLSI technology. It is written and developed for the Electronics and Communication Engineers in WBUT. The goal is to provide the most up-to-date information in IC technology, devices and their models, circuit simulations, amplifiers, logic design, memory, Switched Capacitor Circuits, ASIC. This book is not an all-encompassing digest of everything taught within an Electronics Engineering curriculum on VLSI technology. It is an outcome of my experience in teaching this course. I appreciate my students who have recharged my energy in each semester with their suggestions and criticism.
