Since the publication of the first edition of this book, the field of analog integrated circuits has
developed and matured. The initial groundwork was laid in bipolar technology, followed by
a rapid evolution of MOS analog integrated circuits. Thirty years ago, CMOS technologies
were fast enough to support applications only at audio frequencies. However, the continu-ing reduction of the minimum feature size in integrated-circuit (IC) technologies has greatly
increased the maximum operating frequencies, and CMOS technologies have become fast
enough for many new applications as a result. For example, the bandwidth in some video
applications is about 4 MHz, requiring bipolar technologies as recently as about twenty-three
years ago. Now, however, CMOS easily can accommodate the required bandwidth for video
and is being used for radio-frequency applications. Today, bipolar integrated circuits are used in
some applications that require very low noise, very wide bandwidth, or driving low-impedance
In this fifth edition, coverage of the bipolar 741 op amp has been replaced with a low-voltage bipolar op amp, the NE5234, with rail-to-rail common-mode input range and almost
rail-to-rail output swing. Analysis of a fully differential CMOS folded-cascode operational
amplifier (op amp) is now included in Chapter 12. The 560B phase-locked loop, which is no
longer commercially available, has been deleted from Chapter 10.
The SPICE computer analysis program is now readily available to virtually all electrical
engineering students and professionals, and we have included extensive use of SPICE in this
edition, particularly as an integral part of many problems. We have used computer analysis as
it is most commonly employed in the engineering design process—both as a more accurate
check on hand calculations, and also as a tool to examine complex circuit behavior beyond the
scope of hand analysis.
An in-depth look at SPICE as an indispensable tool for IC robust design can be found in
The SPICE Book, 2nd ed., published by J. Wiley and Sons. This text contains many worked
out circuit designs and verification examples linked to the multitude of analyses available in
the most popular versions of SPICE. The SPICE Book conveys the role of simulation as an
integral part of the design process, but not as a replacement for solid circuit-design knowledge.
This book is intended to be useful both as a text for students and as a reference book for
practicing engineers. For class use, each chapter includes many worked problems; the problem
sets at the end of each chapter illustrate the practical applications of the material in the text. All
of the authors have extensive industrial experience in IC design and in the teaching of courses
on this subject; this experience is reflected in the choice of text material and in the problem
Although this book is concerned largely with the analysis and design of ICs, a considerable
amount of material also is included on applications. In practice, these two subjects are closely
linked, and a knowledge of both is essential for designers and users of ICs. The latter compose
the larger group by far, and we believe that a working knowledge of IC design is a great
advantage to an IC user. This is particularly apparent when the user must choose from among a
number of competing designs to satisfy a particular need. An understanding of the IC structure
is then useful in evaluating the relative desirability of the different designs under extremes of
environment or in the presence of variations in supply voltage. In addition, the IC user is in a much better position to interpret a manufacturer’s data if he or she has a working knowledge
of the internal operation of the integrated circuit.
The contents of this book stem largely from courses on analog integrated circuits given at
the University of California at the Berkeley and Davis campuses. The courses are senior-level
electives and first-year graduate courses. The book is structured so that it can be used as the
basic text for a sequence of such courses. The more advanced material is found at the end of
each chapter or in an appendix so that a first course in analog integrated circuits can omit this
material without loss of continuity. An outline of each chapter is given below with suggestions
for material to be covered in such a first course. It is assumed that the course consists of three
hours of lecture per week over a fifteen-week semester and that the students have a working
knowledge of Laplace transforms and frequency-domain circuit analysis. It is also assumed
that the students have had an introductory course in electronics so that they are familiar with
the principles of transistor operation and with the functioning of simple analog circuits. Unless
otherwise stated, each chapter requires three to four lecture hours to cover.
