Mikael Sahrling is a Principal Electronics Engineer working on developing high speed electrical interfaces for the Test&Measurement and communication industries. He has about 25 years of experience developing integrated circuits and many of the projects he has been a part of has brought in 10-100 millions of dollars in revenue. Mikael has worked for many of the leading analog chip companies like Semtech Corporation, Maxim Integrated, and Tektronix Inc. where he is the lead Analog Design Engineer. His special interest is in high speed active and passive design with a bandwidth of several tens of GigaHertz.
Mikael is the author of “Fast Techniques for Integrated Circuit Design” published by Cambridge University Press in August 2019, “Analog Circuit Simulators for Integrated Circuit Designers “ published by Springer International in March 2021 and “Layout Techniques for Integrated Circuit Designers “ to be published by Artech House in August 2022.
Mikael lives in Cupertino, CA with his wife and daughter.
Layout Techniques for Integrated Circuit Designers
This book provides complete step-by-step guidance on the physical implementation of modern integrated circuits, showing you their limitations and guiding you through their common remedies. The book describes today’s manufacturing techniques and how they impact design rules. You will understand how to build common high frequency devices such as inductors, capacitors and T-coils, and will also learn strategies for dealing with high-speed routing both on package level and on-chip applications. Numerous algorithms implemented in Python are provided to guide you through how extraction, netlist comparison and design rule checkers can be built. The book also helps you unravel complexities that effect circuit design, including signal integrity, matching, IR drop, parasitic impedance and more, saving you time in addressing these effects directly. You will also find detailed descriptions of software tools used to analyze a layout database, showing you how devices can be recognized and connectivity accurately assessed.
