About this Book

Learn the fundamentals of integrated communication microsystems

Advanced communication microsystems-the latest technology to emerge in the semiconductor sector after microprocessors-require integration of diverse signal processing blocks in a power-efficient and cost-effective manner. Typically, these systems include data acquisition, data processing, telemetry, and power management. The overall development is a synergy among system, circuit, and component-level designs with a strong emphasis on integration.

This book is targeted at students, researchers, and industry practitioners in the semiconductor area who require a thorough understanding of integrated communication microsystems from a developer's perspective. The book thoroughly and carefully explores:

  • Fundamental requirements of communication microsystems

  • System design and considerations for wired and wireless communication microsystems

  • Advanced block-level design techniques for communication microsystems

  • Integration of communication systems in a hybrid environment

  • Packaging considerations

  • Power and form factor trade-offs in building integrated microsystems

Advanced Integrated Communication Microsystems is an ideal textbook for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses. It also serves as a valuable reference for researchers and practitioners in circuit design for telecommunications and related fields.
