CMOS Analog Circuit Design
This textbook takes readers step-by-step through the creation of real circuit, explaining and demystifying complex design problems with detailed coverage of often-neglected areas and deliberately leaves out bipolar analog circuits. This edition has an updated Chapter 2 that reflects the latest technology on twin-well shallow-trench-isolation CMOS, while coverage of such topics as frequency response, feedback, distortion, noise, bootstrapped voltage references, and photosensitivity have been expanded accordingly.

The text emphasizes physical appreciation of concepts through heuristic reasoning, metaphors, analogies, and creative explanation. Such as approach is different from a purely deductive technique that uses mere mathematical manipulation of symbols and ignores the physical meaning behind various derivations. The author uses mathematics not so much to prove axiomatic theory as to support and enhance physical and intuitive understanding. Theoretical results are interpreted heuristically and are enhanced by carefully chosen examples and analogies.
This is an exciting revision of John Kraus’ classic book “Antennas”, which has been long known as the “Antenna Bible”. A new co-author, Ronald Marhefka has joined the author team for this revision. Many new, modern applications have been added – thus the title change to “Antennas with All Applications”. As well, the references have been updated to include recent additions to the literature. Additionally, the book has been reorganized to make it more user-friendly for both students and professionals. The book now covers the fundamentals of various antennas and concepts in the first half of the book and then gets into more details on those same topics later in the book. This allows a one-semester course to just cover the fundamentals if desired, and a professional to focus on advanced topics if he or she wants.
The authors present the background, notation, and nomenclature essential for students to understand the various and independent technical approaches, that exist in the field of mechanism, kinematics, and dynamics. Coverage of all analysis and development methods is balanced, with the use of both analytic and graphic tools. This text is ideal for undergraduate students of mechanical engineering.
SUPERCHARGE your understanding of ELECTRONICS
Learn electronics without getting your wires crossed! Electronics Demystified, Second Edition teaches you fundamental concepts and applications step by step.
This practical guide begins by covering voltage, current, resistance, impedance, admittance, and power supplies. The book goes on to discuss semiconductor diodes, transistors, integrated circuits, and signal amplifiers and oscillators. Wireless electronics is then addressed, including radio-frequency transmitters and receivers, telecommunications, and antennas. Detailed examples make it easy to understand the material. End-of-chapter quizzes and a final exam help reinforce key topics.
It’s a no-brainer! You’ll learn about:
- Ohm’s law
- Current and voltage in RL and RC circuits
- Oscillation and amplification
- Bipolar and field-effect transistors
- Radio-wave propagation
- Receiver and transmitter design
- Communications satellites and antennas
Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Electronics Demystified, Second Edition helps you master this essential subject.
