The Art of Analog Layout covers the issues involved in successfully laying out analog integrated circuits. It  provides clear guidance and presents the material in an easy-to-understand way, without compromising detail or overwhelming you with theoretical physics or mathematical analysis of layouts. Emphasis is placed on the cross-sections of devices and carrier-based models of device operation as compared to the more common geometric and schematic representation of devices.

The 3rd Edition is entirely rewritten to reflect changes in the field, including a new chapter on layout and new content on failure mechanisms, resistors, capacitors and inductors, bipolar transistors and their applications, the MOS transistor and more.
