  • Surveys the state-of-the-art in all-silicon frequency references
  • Examines the use of the well-defined thermal properties of silicon in generating accurate on-chip frequencies 
  • Demonstrates simplified models that allow electronics engineers to simulate  electrothermal elements in circuit simulators
  • Follows a top-down methodology in circuit design, in which system-level design is promoted by behavioral simulations

This book describes an alternative method of accurate on-chip frequency generation in standard CMOS IC processes. This method exploits the thermal-diffusivity of silicon, the rate at which heat diffuses through a silicon substrate.  This is the first book describing thermal-diffusivity-based frequency references, including the complete theoretical methodology supported by practical realizations that prove the feasibility of the method.  Coverage also includes several circuit and system-level solutions for the analog electronic circuit design challenges faced.

 

·         Surveys the state-of-the-art in all-silicon frequency references;

·         Examines the thermal properties of silicon as a solution for the challenge of on-chip accurate frequency generation;

·         Uses simplified modeling approaches that allow an electronics engineer easily to simulate the electrothermal elements;

·         Follows a top-down methodology in circuit design, in which system-level design is promoted by behavioral simulations.
