Modern communications technology demands smaller, faster and more efficient circuits. This book reviews the fundamentals of electromagnetism in passive and active circuit elements, highlighting various effects and potential problems in designing a new circuit. The author begins with a review of the basics - the origin of resistance, capacitance, and inductance - then progresses to more advanced topics such as passive device design and layout, resonant circuits, impedance matching, high-speed switching circuits, and parasitic coupling and isolation techniques. Using examples and applications in RF and microwave systems, the author describes transmission lines, transformers, and distributed circuits. State-of-the-art developments in Si based broadband analog, RF, microwave, and mm-wave circuits are reviewed. With up-to-date results, techniques, practical examples, illustrations and worked examples, this book will be valuable to advanced undergraduate and graduate students of electrical engineering, and practitioners in the IC design industry.

About the Author

Ali M. Niknejad obtained his Ph.D. in 2000 from the University of California, Berkeley, where he is currently an assistant professor in the EECS department. He is a faculty director at the Berkeley Wireless Research Center (BWRC) and the co-director of the BSIM Research Group. Before his appointment at Berkeley, Niknejad worked for several years for Silicon Laboratories designing CMOS ICs. He has also served as an associate editor of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits, and was a co-recipient of the Jack Raper Award for Outstanding Technology Directions Paper at ISSCC 2004.
