New exciting opportunities are abounding in the field of body area networks, wireless communications, data networking, and optical imaging. In response to these developments, top-notch international experts in industry and academia present Circuits at the Nanoscale: Communications, Imaging, and Sensing. This volume, unique in both its scope and its focus, addresses the state-of-the-art in integrated circuit design in the context of emerging systems.

A must for anyone serious about circuit design for future technologies, this book discusses emerging materials that can take system performance beyond standard CMOS. These include Silicon on Insulator (SOI), Silicon Germanium (SiGe), and Indium Phosphide (InP). Three-dimensional CMOS integration and co-integration with Microelectromechanical (MEMS) technology and radiation sensors are described as well. Topics in the book are divided into comprehensive sections on emerging design techniques, mixed-signal CMOS circuits, circuits for communications, and circuits for imaging and sensing.

Dr. Krzysztof Iniewski is a director at CMOS Emerging Technologies, Inc., a consulting company in Vancouver, British Columbia. His current research interests are in VLSI ciruits for medical applications. He has published over 100 research papers in international journals and conferences, and he holds 18 international patents granted in the United States, Canada, France, Germany, and Japan. In this volume, he has assembled the contributions of over 60 world-reknown experts who are at the top of their field in the world of circuit design, advancing the bank of knowledge for all who work in this exciting and burgeoning area.

  • The only book on the market that covers circuits for emerging technologies beyond the standard CMOS circuit books
  • Coverage includes CMOS process technology, low power circuit implementations for microprocessor applications, digital radio processing for wireless, circuits for medical imaging and many other emerging circuit implementations in bio-medical space.
  • Written by a mixture of top industrial experts and key academic professors. Practical enough to understand how these technologies work, but not a product manual. Scientific enough but not pure academic theory from the ivory tower.
  • Covers CMOS circuit implementations, which is a key aspect required to understand majority of emerging technologies as silicon is communication technology enabler.
  • Exploits potential behind new materials (SiGe, InP, carbon nanotubes, quantum dots) that might carry circuit performance beyond CMOS.
