Learn the fundamentals of integrated communication microsystemsAdvanced 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 microsystemsSystem design and considerations for wired and wireless communication microsystemsAdvanced block-level design techniques for communication microsystemsIntegration of communication systems in a hybrid environmentPackaging considerationsPower and form factor trade-offs in building integrated microsystemsAdvanced 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.
