B. Razavi, Fundamentals of Microelectronics, Preliminary Edition, Wiley, 2006

To succeed in the practice of microelectronics in industry, students must develop the ability to think intuitively about circuits. They need to move beyond simply plugging and chugging numbers in equations and be prepared to face real design trade-offs. Preview Edition helps students develop intuitive techniques so they can design and implement circuits not just analyze them. Using many real-word examples and applications, the text motivates the student to understand the importance of today's microelectronics.

    B. Razavi, Ed., Phase-Locking in High-Performance Systems, IEEE Press, 2003

The rapid growth of high-speed semiconductor and communication technologies has helped make phase-locked loops (PLLs) an essential part of memories, microprocessors, radio-frequency (RF) transceivers, broadband data communication systems, and other burgeoning fields.  Phase-Locking in High-Performance Systems: From Devices to Architectures’ five original tutorials and eighty-three key papers provide an eminently readable foundation in phase-locked systems. Analog and digital circuit designers will glean a wide range of practical information from the book.

B. Razavi, Design of Integrated Circuits for Optical Communication Systems, McGraw-Hill, 2003

Design of Integrated Circuits for Optical Communications deals with the design of high-speed integrated circuits for optical communication systems. Written for both students and practicing engineers, the book systematically takes the reader from basic concepts to advanced topics, establishing both rigor and intuition. The text emphasizes analysis and design in modern VLSI technologies, particularly CMOS, and presents numerous broadband circuit techniques. Leading researcher Behzad Razavi is also the author of Design of Analog CMOS Integrated Circuits.

B. Razavi, Design of Analog CMOS Integrated Circuits, McGraw-Hill, 2000

The CMOS technology area has quickly grown, calling for a new text--and here it is, covering the analysis and design of CMOS integrated circuits that practicing engineers need to master to succeed. Filled with many examples and chapter-ending problems, the book not only describes the thought process behind each circuit topology, but also considers the rationale behind each modification. The analysis and design techniques focus on CMOS circuits but also apply to other IC technologies.
