The ADLE Booklist : Version 1

ADLE’s Analog Design Book List is a compilation of top suggested reading for those studying and practising analog design. The recommendations come from some of the people that ADLE has profiled over the last year, plus some regular contributors to the site. If you have additional suggestions or comments to make on the following list, please feel free to comment below – the more feedback, the better this list will be.

The Top Four:
1. Analysis and Design of Analog Integrated Circuits

Authors: Paul R. Gray, Paul J. Hurst, Steven Lewis & Robert G. Meyer.
ISBN-13: 978-0470398777 (paperback – 2009), ISBN-13: 978-0470245996 (hardback – 2009). Publisher: John Wiley & Sons.

On whose bookshelf? Jim Solomon, Benedetto Vigna and Andrew Beckett, who says it is ‘the standard text on analog IC design.’

Chapter 9 of Analysis and Design of Analog Integrated Circuits is being serlialised on ADLE. For details click here

2. Delta-Sigma Data Converters: Theory, Design, and Simulation
Authors: Steven R. Norsworty, Richard Schreier & Gabor C. Temes
ISBN-13: 978-0780310452 (hardback – 1996). Publisher: Wiley – IEEE PRESS

On whose bookshelf? Benedetto Vigna, Colin Lyden and Robert Hatfield (principal product architect, Wolfson), who ranks this as his number one analog design reference book.

3. Analog Design Essentials
Author: Prof. Willy M.C. Sansen
ISBN-13: 978-0387257464 (hardback – 2006) Publisher: Springer

On whose bookshelf? Colin Lyden is a fan: “Any of Willy Sansen’s books are very accessible for mixed signal CMOS design.”

4. The Art of Electronics
Authors: Paul Horowitz & Winfield Hill
ISBN-13: 978-0521370950 (hardback – 1989) Publisher: Cambridge University Press

On whose bookshelf? Kendall Castor-Perry says it will be a travesty if this doesn’t come out on top. [Oops, sorry Kendall! – Ed.]
