Bipolar Digital Circuits

Conference paper
Part of the NATO Advanced Study Institutes Series book series (NSSE, volume 55)


A typical bipolar integrated circuit process provides n-p-n transistors as the primary active device, various diode and resistor structures, and lateral p-n-p transistors of rather poor performance. This range of components gives the bipolar process the flexibility to make a wide variety of digital and analogue circuits on the same process, or even the same chip.
