PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION

Since publication of the first edition of this book in 1998, RF CMOS has made a rapid transition to commercialization. Back then, the only notable examples of RF CMOS circuits were academic and industrial prototypes. No companies were then shipping RF products using this technology, and conference panel sessions openly questioned the suitability of CMOS for such applications – often concluding in the negative. Few universities offered an RF integrated circuit design class of any kind, and only one taught a course solely dedicated to CMOS RF circuit design. Hampering development was the lack of device models that properly accounted for noise and impedance at gigahertz frequencies. Measurements and models so conflicted ...
