Design of Integrated Circuits for Optical Communications deals with the design of high-speed integrated circuits for optical communication systems. Written for both students and practicing engineers, the book systematically takes the reader from basic concepts to advanced topics, establishing both rigor and intuition. The text emphasizes analysis and design in modern VLSI technologies, particularly CMOS,
and presents numerous broadband circuit techniques. Leading researcher Behzad Razavi is also the author of Design of Analog CMOS Integrated Circuits.
BEHZAD RAZAVI, PhD, Professor of Electrical Enginnering at University of California, Los Angeles, is an award-winning author, researcher, and teacher. His research deals with wireless and wireline transceivers, high-speed communication circuits, and data converters. Author of more than 100 papers and seven popular books, Prof. Razavi is a Fellow of the IEEE, has served as an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer, and was recognized as one of the top ten authors in the fifty-year history of the International Solid-State Circuits Conference. He received the IEEE Donald O. Pederson Award in 2012 for his pioneering contributions to the design of high-speed CMOS communication circuits.
