Stevens Professor Babak Heydari Releases Book on Ultra High-Speed CMOS Circuits

11/18/2011

Hoboken, NJ – Dr. Babak Heydari, assistant professor in Stevens’ School of Systems and Engineering, has published a new book entitled “Ultra High-Speed CMOS Circuits,” (Springer, 2011).

Coauthored by Sam Gharavi, a Ph.D. student at the University of California, Berkeley, the book covers the CMOS-based millimeter wave circuits and devices and presents methods and design techniques to use CMOS technology for circuits operating beyond 100 GHz.

Coverage includes a detailed description of both active and passive devices, including modeling techniques and performance optimization. Various mm-wave circuit blocks are discussed, emphasizing their design distinctions from low-frequency design methodologies.

This book also covers a device-oriented circuit design technique that is essential for ultra high speed circuits and gives some examples of device/circuit co-design that can be used for mm-wave technology.
