About this book

The book presents a comprehensive treatment of the numerical simulation of semiconductor devices. After an overview of the basic physics of fluctuations in semiconductors, noise modelling techniques are introduced for the small-signal case. In particular, a detailed treatment is devoted to Green's function approaches such as the Impedance Field Method. Then, the numerical implementation of such approaches within the framework of multi-dimensional numerical device models is discussed in detail with reference to the customary Finite-Boxes discretization scheme. Finally, the topic of large-signal noise simulation is addressed within the framework of the Harmonic Balance approach, and implementation details are given for the non-autonomous case. The application fields covered range from low-noise, small-signal amplifiers to nonlinear circuits such as RF and microwave frequency multipliers and mixers.

Reviews

From the reviews of the first edition:

"This book is devoted to the research and estimation of the electrical noise generated by active semiconductor devices. It provides a thorough introduction to the physics-based numerical modeling of these devices operating both in small-signal and in large-signal conditions. … this comprehensive treatment of the numerical simulation of noise in semiconductor devices successfully combines a modern physical understanding with rigorous mathematics and numerical methods. This book should be recommended to scientists and engineers of corresponding specialties … ." (I. A. Parinov, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1044 (19), 2004)

"Bonani and Ghione have written an excellent source book for research engineers and scientists interested in the modelling of noise in semiconductor devices. … Compact noise models are derived from analytic models and numerical methods are presented to solve for the complex and realistic models. ... There is a useful and reasonably comprehensive bibliography. I strongly recommend this book to specialists in the area." (B. D. Nener, The Physicist, Vol. 39 (2), 2002)
