Présentation de l'éditeur
For Electrical Engineering courses in analog layout or professional layout designers.
This text covers the issues involved in successfully laying out analog integrated circuits. Hastings provides clear guidance and does not stress theoretical physics or mathematical analysis of layouts. He emphasizes cross- sections of devices and carrier-based models of device operation as compared to the more common geometric and schematic representation of devices.
Quatrième de couverture
Based on the author's extensive experience as a circuit designer and a layout designer, The Art of Analog Layout takes a practical and authoritative perspective, providing the reader with broad coverage of the issues involved in successfully laying out analog integrated circuits. Topics range from the mechanics of layout to essential information about many related areas, such as device physics, processing failure modes and effects, device operation, parasitics, and matching. The emphasis throughout is on practical knowledge.
- Written for layout designers, the mathematics is kept to a minimum, requiring only a familiarity with basic algebra and elementary electronics.
- Provides a carrier-based model for understanding device operation.
- Focuses on three processes: standard bipolar, polysilicon-gate CMOS, and analog BICMOS, enabling the reader to comprehend most new processes.
- Discusses the ways in which variations in layout geometries affect the performance of devices fabricated in silicon.
- Many exercises can be completed using pencil and paper for those who do not have access to layout editing software.

I have to be honest and recognize that this book is really trying, with a lot of success, to bring the "science" of circuit design closer to the "Art of Integrated Circuit layout". This is the first book that is coming from processing, physics and design toward a better layout practice. Starting from device physics, semiconductor fabrication, examples of various processes, etc., Alan Hastings is concentrating all his energy to make us, the IC Layout Designers, better prepared to understand all the analog requirements. He is explaining in very deep details why we have to obey design rules, why we need matching devices, diodes, and is teaching us how to work with sensitive devices like Resistors and Capacitors in an analog high speed environment. This book represents a MUST for any IC Layout Designer involved in high speed design, small gate size, special exotic processes, etc., anywhere were the understanding of the process is a basic requirement. BiCMOS, Bipolar and CMOS process fabrication issues are explained to the level that becomes directly useful in a day to day practice of an Analog Layout Designer. I would recommend this book for layout people involved in DIGITAL design, so they can get a grasp of what are the issues in analog and try to address them in their world. As gate size shrinks some of today analog solutions start to be needed for tomorrow-digital designs. Signal integrity, low power libraries, cross talk, clocks symmetry, noise in high-speed designs, special guard rings, etc., are already some of the topics that 10 years ago were only the subject of analog designer.
Thank you Alan, I learned a lot from your book and I am happy that you spent the time and effort to make us better prepared for "The Art of Analog Layout".

Even though the author attempts to "dumb" the concepts down to make it more useful for general reference, he uses terms that are not common to most layout designers. Case in point: the term "chirality" is used to describe the symmetry of a given layout. Why not use the term "symmetry" which most people are very familiar with?
If you're a pro at analog layout, don't bother buying this book expecting to learn something new. Chances are, you know most of what is contained in the book. I wish I would've spent my [money] elsewhere. These views are also shared by my peers who have looked over the book and are well-versed in mixed-signal CMOS layout.
