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.
