Fundamentals of MicroelectronicsTo succeed in the practice of microelectronics in industry, students must develop the ability to think intuitively about circuits. They need to move beyond simply plugging and chugging numbers in equations and be prepared to face real design trade-offs. Fundamentals of Microelectronics, Preview Edition helps students develop intuitive techniques so they can design and implement circuits not just analyze them. Using many real-word examples and applications, the text motivates the student to understand the importance of today's microelectronics. |

As an introductory text, there is no substitute. This book is so amazing. The focus on intuitive design is what sets it apart from other texts. Take the classic Grey and Meyer, or Sedra and Smith. Those guys will show you how to derive gain of an op-amp over the course of several pages. Razavi will show that too, but will emphasize how to quickly analyze a circuit.
My friends call this my "cheat" book, because it is SO clear. The examples are perfect. They start with the simple, basic circuits, and built up to more complex ones.
If you want a really solid understanding of transistorized circuits, buy this book. If your course requires one of the "other" texts, I would still buy this one. The text is so practical, so elegant.. it has no equal. And the author writes it in a very personal way, that is a big contrast to the old and cold textbooks (S&S, G&M).
Thanks Razavi, much appreciated. You have definitely left your mark.
