Book is solid and there is a striking, hand colored foldout map facing p.568, map is in excellent condition. Interior is clean though slightly toned. Spine ends and corners are worn with light fraying, slight rubbing to paper label and corners at tail end are lightly bumped. Front pastedown has a previous owner's bookplate.
Second edition, enlarged. 16mo, 508pgs. Full bound in navy blue cloth with gilt stamped image of owl on front board and gilt stamped titling on spine. Slight wear to head and tail of spine, as well as corner tips. Paste-down endpaper cracked but hinge still solidboth front and back. Slight toning to interior pages, else clean throughout.
This text studies ways to ground and shield electronic equipment and facilities to control interference. The language of power engineers and the National Electrical Code are explained. The author also lays the ground rules for safety and explains how to attack and solve problems in grounding and shielding via a field theoretic approach rather than a circuit approach. Background theory is given and various hardware and equipment, all key areas in grounding and shielding, ESD, screened rooms, and topics in field coupling are provided.
"Clean, bright, tight & completely unmarked.
"Rebound. 12mo, 496 pgs + ads. Quarter bound tan cloth with marbled paper boards. Several fold-out charts and maps, some reinforced with paper tape, black and white illustration cuts throughout. Original passages with some damp stains, especially near the beginning of text block. Previous owner's signature on title page. A thorough volume on the science of astronomy.
Standard voltages used in today's ICs may vary from about 1.3V to more than 100V, depending on the technology and the application. High voltage is therefore a relative notion.
High Voltage Devices and Circuits in Standard CMOS Technologies is mainly focused on standard CMOS technologies, where high voltage (HV) is defined as any voltage higher than the nominal (low) voltage, i.e. 5V, 3.3V, or even lower. In this standard CMOS environment, IC designers are more and more frequently confronted with HV problems, particularly at the I/O level of the circuit.
In the first group of applications, a large range of industrial or consumer circuits either require HV driving capabilities, or are supposed to work in a high-voltage environment. This includes ultrasonic drivers, flat panel displays, robotics, automotive, etc. On the other hand, in the emerging field of integrated microsystems, MEMS actuators mainly make use of electrostatic forces involving voltages in the typical range of 30 to 60V. Last but not least, with the advent of deep sub-micron and/or low-power technologies, the operating voltage tends towards levels ranging from 1V to 2.5V, while the interface needs to be compatible with higher voltages, such as 5V.
For all these categories of applications, it is usually preferable to perform most of the signal processing at low voltage, while the resulting output rises to a higher voltage level. Solving this problem requires some special actions at three levels: technology, circuit design and layout.
High Voltage Devices and Circuits in Standard CMOS Technologies addresses these topics in a clear and organized way. The theoretical background is supported by practical information and design examples. It is an invaluable reference for researchers and professionals in both the design and device communities.
