Prior to the analysis of nonlinear behavior of analog circuits, it is necessary to describe the nonlinear devices that are present in analog integrated circuits. The devices most commonly used in silicon analog integrated circuits are transistors, resistors, capacitors and diodes. In the last few years self inductances and mutual inductances have been integrated as well [Ngu 90, Ash 96, Long 95, Long 95]. Their nonlinear behavior is not considered in this book.
