Featuring hundreds of illustrations and references, this volume in the third edition of the Circuits and Filters Handbook, provides the latest information on analog and VLSI circuits, omitting extensive theory and proofs in favor of numerous examples throughout each chapter. The first part of the text focuses on analog integrated circuits, presenting up-to-date knowledge on monolithic device models, analog circuit cells, high performance analog circuits, RF communication circuits, and PLL circuits. In the second half of the book, well-known contributors offer the latest findings on VLSI circuits, including digital systems, data converters, and systolic arrays.Although the three nMOS inverter circuits are similar in structure, they have distinct switching properties. ... A condition of bR agt; 1 is generally required to achieve a functional inverter, implying that the driver MOSFET is always larger than the load device. ... By using a switch model for the driver, it is seen that the transient characteristics are determined by the time required to charge and discharge Cout.
