About this book


Semiconductor Modeling: For Simulating Signal, Power, and Electromagnetic Integrity gives designers and engineers a broad view of using semiconductor models to design high-speed circuit boards. Most issues in the field of designing high-frequency circuits, from the beginning of modeling and simulation using EDA tools to future trends, are discussed and integrated.

The main technical focus of Semiconductor Modeling: For Simulating Signal, Power, and Electromagnetic Integrity is the use of simulation to help solve practical engineering problems. The book draws on over 90 years of diverse technical experience and brings together theory, tools, components, software, and experience to help engineers create successful electronic products.

This book will help engineers understand how to approach problem solving while designing high-speed circuits. In particular, it helps engineers in the following areas:

· Encountering non-existent, incomplete, and erroneous semiconductor circuit models.

· Applying EDA tools to achieve practical designs despite model limitations.

· Grasping the basic high-speed digital, RF, and EMC design concepts that guide design intent.

· Applying EDA tools to cutting-edge digital technology.

· Working with suppliers, CAD team members, and others.

· Understanding the processes and procedures that enable and enhance the design process.


The book presents the material in a manner that is helpful to circuit and product design engineers who have little or no specialized knowledge of high-speed digital design or semiconductors.
