Voltage References: From Diodes to Precision High-Order Bandgap Circuits
This book covers the conceptual history and scope of practical design issues behind marketable and precision integrated voltage references. Effectual for professionals and understandable to novice designers, this book provides a familiarity with simple rudimentary design as well as precision state-of-the-art ones. Also covered are the design implications on SOC solutions, and low-voltage, low-power, and noisy mixed signal environments. Enhanced with design examples, this volume will increase the reader's understanding of analog integrated circuits and the issues involved in producing commercially marketable and reliable devices. This is an essential book for IC designers, product engineers, test engineers, researchers, and professors, as well as undergraduate and graduate students.
