The Handbook of VLSI Microlithography gives engineers, scientists and technical workers in the Very Large Scale Integrated Circuit (VLSI) industry a close look at the entire technology of printing high resolution and high density integrated circuit (IC) patterns into thin resist process pattern transfer coatings including optical lithography, electron-beam, ion-beam, and X-ray lithography. The Handbook s main focus is the special printing process needed to achieve volume high density IC chip production, especially in the Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) industry.The 13 contributors compare various lithography methods, including the three major patterning parameters of line/space, resolution, line edge and pattern feature dimension control. They explore the basics of resist technology including the first practical description of the relationship between the resist process and equipment parameters.The Handbook includes evaluations of alternative lithographic techniques and testing methods, including optical, scanning-electron-micro-scope (SEM) techniques and electrical test devices, along with explanations of actual printing tools and their design, construction and performance. The editor devotes an entire chapter to today s sophisticated, complex electron-beam printers, and to the emerging X-ray printing technology now used in high-density CMOS devices. Energetic ion particle printing is a controllable, steerable technology that does not rely on resist, and occupies a final section of the Handbook.

Culled from the pages of CRC's highly successful, best-selling The Circuits and Filters Handbook, Second Edition, Nonlinear and Distributed Circuits presents a sharply focused, comprehensive review of the fundamental theory behind professional applications of these complex circuits. It supplies a concise, convenient reference to the key concepts, models, and equations necessary to analyze, design, and predict the behavior of nonlinear and distributed circuits, illustrated by frequent examples. Edited by a distinguished authority, this book emphasizes the theoretical concepts underlying the processes, behavior, and operation of these devices. More than 225 figures and tables illustrate the concepts, and where necessary, the theories, principles, and mathematics of some subjects are reviewed. Expert contributors discuss the analysis, synthesis, and design of nonlinear circuits; their representation, approximation, identification, and simulation; cellular neural networks; multiconductor transmission lines; and analysis and synthesis of distributed circuits. Nonlinear and Distributed Circuits builds a strong theoretical foundation for the design and analysis of both distributed and nonlinear circuits while serving as a handy reference for experienced engineers, making it a must-have for both beginners and seasoned experts.

Upon its initial publication, The Circuits and Filters Handbook broke new ground. It quickly became the resource for comprehensive coverage of issues and practical information that can be put to immediate use. Not content to rest on his laurels, in addition to updating the second edition, editor Wai-Kai Chen divided it into tightly-focused texts that made the information easily accessible and digestible. These texts have been revised, updated, and expanded so that they continue to provide solid coverage of standard practices and enlightened perspectives on new and emerging techniques. Passive, Active, and Digital Filters provides an introduction to the characteristics of analog filters and a review of the design process and the tasks that need to be undertaken to translate a set of filter specifications into a working prototype. Highlights include discussions of the passive cascade synthesis and the synthesis of LCM and RC one-port networks; a summary of two-port synthesis by ladder development; a comparison of the cascade approach, the multiple-loop feedback topology, and ladder simulations; an examination of four types of finite wordlength effects; and coverage of methods for designing two-dimensional finite-extent impulse response (FIR) discrete-time filters. The book includes coverage of the basic building blocks involved in low- and high-order filters, limitations and practical design considerations, and a brief discussion of low-voltage circuit design. Revised Chapters: Sensitivity and Selectivity Switched-Capacitor Filters FIR Filters IIR Filters VLSI Implementation of Digital Filters Two-Dimensional FIR Filters Additional Chapters: 1-D Multirate Filter Banks Directional Filter Banks Nonlinear Filtering Using Statistical Signal Models Nonlinear Filtering for Image Denoising Video Demosaicking Filters This volume will undoubtedly take its place as the engineer's first choice in looking for solutions to problems encountered when designing filters.
