What you'll find here is a fascinating compendium of fundamental problem formulations of analog design centering and sizing. This essential work provides a differentiated knowledge about the tasks of analog design centering and sizing. In particular, worst-case scenarios are formulated and analyzed. This work is right at the crossing point between process and design technology, and is both reference work and textbook for understanding CAD methods in analog sizing.
