This textbook deals with the analysis and design of analog CMOS integrated circuits, emphasizing recent technological developments and design paradigms that students and practicing engineers need to master to succeed in today's industry. Based on the author's teaching and research experience in the past ten years, the text follows three general principles: (1) Motivate the reader by describing the significance and application of each idea with real-world problems; (2) Force the reader to look at concepts from an intuitive point of view, preparing him/her for more complex problems; (3) Complement the intuition by rigorous analysis, confirming the results obtained by the intuitive, yet rough approach.

This is the best book I ever read, including all fictions etc. It gives the perfect perspective about analog circuits and all its associated issues. This is like a Bible for analog circuit designers. The way he connects the control systems concepts with analog circuits is truly amazing and the nonlinearity issues and noise. Thanks a lot Dr. Behzad razavi.

There is no other textbook or teacher that can explain Analog design concepts better than Razavi. Professor Razavi is by far the best and a league of his own. I took 2 of Razavi's course and I was astonished by his humbleness and character. He definitely know his material and has a way of simplifying the most esoteric concepts to a novice. I'm thankful for this book and for his instruction. He is the reason why I appreciate and perform analog design for a living.
