The next part of the book, extending from chapter 9 through to 12, concentrates on the design and applications of mixed-signal ASICs. Chapter 9 focuses on a commercial BiCMOS standard cell library providing great flexibility for designing mixed analogue-digital IC applications. The chapter presents brief descriptions of the BiCMOS process employed, the cell libraries available and the CAD tools and systems, and finally provides two application examples. 6), and in particular on the simulators available.

Following oxidation, the nitride layer is removed. 6) The next stage of processing is very critical to final MOSFET performance. First of all there is an implant to produce the required threshold voltages for the MOSFETs (not shown). 6 Gate oxidation and base implant grows a thin (25 nm) layer of silicon dioxide to act as the dielectric between the gate contact and the silicon. The pre-growth cleans and the actual growth of this thin oxide are very important, as they are critical for the overall performance of the MOSFET - threshold voltage, drive current, breakdown voltage and leakage are all affected by this step.

5 As it is the fundamental vehicle for IC fabrication, process technology is addressed first, in chapter 2, which considers one particular BiCMOS technology. BiCMOS offers more accurate analogue devices and better Introduction noise immunity at the expense of somewhat greater complexity and cost than pure CMOS technology, which nevertheless is also widely used to implement analogue functions. This can in fact be seen in the next part of the book, which addresses a variety of circuit techniques and functional building blocks for designing analogue-digital ICs with both CMOS and BiCMOS technologies.
