The ability to integrate some common analog electronics has been overlooked, creating a wide opportunity for creative IC developers.
What metrics should be established to verify analog performance in general and integrated analog performance in particular? How much testing is not enough and how much is too much?
Pushing devices to smaller geometry produces some good consequences. But those come with other aspects that are less desirable. For integrated analog, there are significant challenges.
Sometimes the way to save energy is counterintuitive. If all you do is try to improve efficiency, you may not really get the results you want.
Following up on Bill Schweber's blog on technical books and Part 1 of this blog, we take a closer look at some important books that are an excellent source of information.
