5-0 out of 5 stars Not a low-level undergrad book, but great for graduate study
Shur's book tends to present subjects more in-depth than most device physics texts. For example, he will point out (as in van der Ziel's older texts) that the generation rate in a diode space charge region is not uniform, and so when he models things like the space charge region ("n=2") dark current density contribution of diode leakage current, his expressions will be a little more complex than the standard "q ni w / tau" type given in most texts. As another example, instead of just giving plots on how mobility varies with doping, he derives the ionized impurity scattering models that explain this effect, as well as various phonon scattering mechanisms, etc. These points are best appreciated in a second course on semiconductor devices more than on the first go-around. I think his treatment of basic semiconductor physics is very good and is oriented towards the device engineer. I think his development of microwave type devices and effects is considerably more in depth than for optical devices. However, even the minimalist optical device chapter is still pretty reasonable for a textbook, I just think it is at a lower level than his other parts of the book.

I give a thumbs down to this text. Its very hard to read and not laid out well. The sections are not clearly outlined and important formulas not highlighted. There are also numerous discrepencies in the subject matter. All in all, it left me more confused than anything when I was reading it.

The First Comprehensive, Example-Rich Guide to Power Integrity Modeling

Professionals such as signal integrity engineers, package designers, and system architects need to thoroughly understand signal and power integrity issues in order to successfully design packages and boards for high speed systems. Now, for the first time, there's a complete guide to power integrity modeling: everything you need to know, from the basics through the state of the art.

Using realistic case studies and downloadable software examples, two leading experts demonstrate today's best techniques for designing and modeling interconnects to efficiently distribute power and minimize noise.

The authors carefully introduce the core concepts of power distribution design, systematically present and compare leading techniques for modeling noise, and link these techniques to specific applications. Their many examples range from the simplest (using analytical equations to compute power supply noise) through complex system-level applications.

The authors

  • Introduce power delivery network components, analysis, high-frequency measurement, and modeling requirements
  • Thoroughly explain modeling of power/ground planes, including plane behavior, lumped modeling, distributed circuit-based approaches, and much more
  • Offer in-depth coverage of simultaneous switching noise, including modeling for return currents using time- and frequency-domain analysis
  • Introduce several leading time-domain simulation methods, such as macromodeling, and discuss their advantages and disadvantages
  • Present the application of the modeling methods on several advanced case studies that include high-speed servers, high-speed differential signaling, chip package analysis, materials characterization, embedded decoupling capacitors, and electromagnetic bandgap structures

This book's system-level focus and practical examples will make it indispensable for every student and professional concerned with power integrity, including electrical engineers, system designers, signal integrity engineers, and materials scientists. It will also be valuable to developers building software that helps to analyze high-speed systems.

5-0 out of 5 stars Foremost and Authoritative book on Power Integrity
Although lot has been written about Signal Integrity (SI), hardly any book is available for Power Integrity (PI) except for research papers. However, recent high speed interfaces such as DDR memories and faster GHz processors pose enormous power integrity challenges. A timely and most authoritative book on this subject is "Power Integrity Modeling and Design for Semiconductors and Systems" by Prof. Madhavan Swaminathan and Dr. Ege Engin of Packaging Research Centre (PRC), Georgia Tech. , USA.

The book captures key results of the power integrity research particularly in the last 5 years and shows how these results can be applied to solve complex off-chip power integrity problems in practice. It also provides in depth understanding of algorithms specifically developed for power integrity model extraction and analysis. Besides R&D, understanding these algorithms and methods would also help to make judicious investments on appropriate tools for power integrity analysis. Analysis of power integrity issues and solutions on some of the leading designs from companies such as Sun Microsystems, IBM and Rambus is of great value addition in this book. What's more, authors also provide a freely downloadable tool developed at PRC, Georgia Tech. for power integrity modeling. Examples discussed in this book can be easily tried with this simulator.

The book is organized in to 5 chapters. The chapter 1 explains the fundamental concepts behind origin, modeling, design and analysis of power integrity effects. It also briefly discusses the techniques for high frequency power-ground impedance measurements. The concepts of self and transfer impedances are also dealt in this chapter. Additionally a methodology for power integrity modeling is presented which forms the basis for subsequent chapters.

The chapter 2 discusses the modeling of power and ground planes with both lumped and distributed circuit approaches.Some of the topics covered are Transmission Matrix Method (TMM), Finite Difference Method (FDM), Finite Difference Time Domain Method (FDTD), Finite Element Method (FEM) and cavity resonators. It also discusses in detail coupling of multiple plane pairs through vias and apertures.

The chapter 3 is all about Simultaneous Switching Noise (SSN). The challenge for SSN analysis is to model complex interaction between transmission lines and plane pairs. A modal decomposition method is introduced for the SSN analysis of plane pairs acting as return path for transmission lines. Applicability of developed SSN model in both time and frequency domains are analyzed. Case study of a complex board analysis using modeling approach developed is also included.

The chapter 4 discusses time domain simulation methods such as rational function method, Signal Flow Graphs (SFG) and Modified Nodal Analysis (MNA). These simulation methods provide time domain waveforms from frequency response captured through S-parameters or other equivalent parameters. The results derived in this chapter show why co-simulation of signal and power integrity effects is required and how this can be done using the simulation methods described. The importance of causality and passivity enforcement are illustrated through practical examples. Thevarious time domain simulation methods are also compared.

The chapter 5 provides case studies of power integrity issues in packages and PCBs in leading industrial designs. Other topics covered are test structures for extraction of material properties, embedded decoupling capacitors and Electronic Band Gap (EBG) structures. Accurate extraction of dielectric material properties such as loss tangent and dielectric constant is essential for accurate power and signal integrity modeling. This material property extraction is always a challenge. The authors however describe a simple yet powerful test setup to accurately extract material properties for broad range of frequencies. Embedded decoupling capacitors are an emerging technology to suppress power supply noise and this is dealt in detail. The EBGs are a novel passive filter structure exploited to provide power supply noise isolation between sensitive analog blocks (ex. LNAs, ADC) and noisy digital circuits. This chapter provides an excellent understanding of modeling and design methods for EBG structures with practical examples.

The methods described in the above chapters were validated using a combination of measurements and full wave EM solver analysis. The book also provides complete details on the fabricated test structures for validation. Figures that illustrate the concepts in this book are so captivating that they more or less need no explanation. Although this book provides a complete picture of power integrity like that of a text book it lacks student problems to reinforce understanding. Nevertheless this is an invaluable book for students stepping in to the world of signal and power integrity, experienced professionals involved in high speed design and for all those developing signal and power integrity tools.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book covering the power integrity issue of package
At first, I was looking for a book covering on-chip power integrity issue and happened to find this book on Amazon. Since I can not search inside this book, I just bought it and later found it is related to the power integrity of package, not chip. However, I DEFINITELY don't regret buying this book because it covers one of the important pieces in the design of power distribution network.

After reading chapter 1, I realize that the power integrity issue should be attacked from a system point of view, including chip, package and board. Only considering on-chip power integrity is not enough because the power supply is located on the board and electrically far away from the chip. The important concept of target impedance is also introduced and really opens my mind on how to design a robust power distribution network.

Chapter 2 covers the modeling of power/ground planes in high performance package and board. Two novel modeling methods, transmission matrix method and cavity-model method are desrcibed in detail here. The major advantages of the two methods over full wave methods, like FDTD and FEM, are ease of integrating into circuit simulators.

Chapter 3 covers the topic of simultaneous switching noises. The signal nets are modeled as uncoupled microstrip and strip transmission lines. The coupling effects between signals and power/ground planes are modeled as controlled sources, which are obtained by mode decomposistion methods. Then, the uncoupled transmission lines and controlled sources are integrated with the power/ground plane models from chapter 2 to conduct simultaneous switching noise analysis.

Chapter 4 introduces time-domain simulations of power distribution networks. The major foucs is how to incorporate s-parameter data into time-domain circuit simulators. The techniques like vetor fitting, passivitiy enforcement by Hamiltonian matrix , signal flow method, and MNA with s-parameter are explained and compared.

Chapter 5 applies the modeling and analysis methods from previous chapters to real applications. Great insight is learned from these real world problems.

I strongly recommend this book to the designers and CAD tool developers of power distribution networks. Since the major focus of this book is package power, I also recommend two other books which cover board and on-chip power integirty issue respectively:

I live in Japan and have been working on development of semiconductor process technology for ten years. First, I bought the Dr. Grove in Japanese edition when graduate student ,and have been making the best of it , which made me again buy this English edition through amazon.com.(The English edition is not available in Japan)
This book begins with an introduction of process technology(Epitaxy, Oxidation, Diffusion) and followed by the device technology, whileall other textbooks begins with device technology of transistor such as pn junction, MOS physics ,Bipolar Physics. This is because, I think, Dr.Grove puts a great importance on process technology and I never read this book again and again without finding something new and important in the chapter 1,2,3 on the solid state technology.
This book is worth while buying and , I recommend that semiconductor-bound students should study this.

Product Description
Optoelectronics has become an important part of our lives. Wherever light is used to transmit information, tiny semiconductor devices are needed to transfer electrical current into optical signalsand vice versa. Examples include light emitting diodes in radios and other appliances, photodetectors in elevator doors and digital cameras, and laser diodes that transmit phone calls through glass fibers. Such optoelectronic devices take advantage of sophisticated interactions between electrons and light.Nanometer scale semiconductor structures are often at the heart of modern optoelectronic devices. Their shrinking size and increasing complexity makecomputer simulation an important tool to design better devices that meetever rising perfomance requirements. The current need to apply advanced design software in optoelectronics follows the trend observed in the 1980's with simulation software for silicon devices.Today, software for technology computer-aided design (TCAD) and electronic design automation (EDA) represents a fundamental part of the silicon industry. In optoelectronics, advanced commercial device software has emerged recently and it is expected to play an increasingly important role in the near future. This book will enable students, device engineers, and researchers to more effectively use advanced design software in optoelectronics.

*Provides fundamental knowledge in semiconductor physics and in electromagnetics, while helping to understand and use advanced device simulation software

4-0 out of 5 stars A comprehensive reference for laser simulation
This book has an extensive list of equations and material data base for the simulation of semiconductor laser. Due to the limited space, the equations were not derived.However, the physics is concisely discussed.It is a must-have for workers in this area.

1-0 out of 5 stars Big tittle for narrow scientific field covered
I got fooled by the big title of this book, which is confusing, inaccurate at least. It should rather be called Modern optoelectronic devices. I would expect more textbook-style contents and treatment. Unfortunately, it's more about authors selected research and experience with few modern devices, mostly lasers, and corresponding basic theory.
It treats in detail some special optoelectronic devices like lasers or modulators. No treatment of photodiodes at all, the only candidate for photodection is an amplified GaAs photodetector. I find it misleading regarding the title of this book!
Stay away from this book of you are looking for a textbook or a reference text. If you are fan of state-of-the art research, it probably for you.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not an introductory treatment...
I could sympathize with a previous reviewer because on first thumbing through this thin book, I also thought "That's it?". I almost suspect this started out as an example book for the Crosslight software. However, to be fair, on second glance, there is a lot of data in it, and the author clearly knows the subject matter. For example, if you want to model the refractive index by the Sellmeier or Adachi methods, this book supplies the basic formula as well as material data for a wide range of semiconductors to use in the formula. I found this quite useful; however, there are no derivations and if you had never used such formula before one may be a little uncomfortable just using formula blindly (although he does give references). The rest of the book is somewhat like the above. I give him credit for at least talking about near and far field emission patterns a little bit. It is an easy book to browse through, get ideas from, and use as a reference, but I do not think it is a good "textbook" to learn the material from as a first exposure

This book was required for my Optoelectronic devices class...sort of.There are no problems in the book and there are no examples.I looked through the book and read some of it and then decided to return it because I really don't think it's worth $90.The book is only 280 pages, and if you look through the table of contents you notice that half of those pages are review of things like quantum mechanics basics, density of states in semiconductors, and other semiconductor basics.In the first few pages of the book he describes conduction band electrons and holes, and refers to holes as actual charges, making no reference at all to the fact that they are just empty bonds.That alone is not much to go on to judge a book, but I was immediately turned off by this.If you're learning these review things for the first time, you don't want to learn them from a 5 page handwaving review.And if you already know these basics, you don't want half the book to be about them, leaving only about 130 pages for actual new Optoelectronic Devices material.I am in the class nowat Virginia Tech, but I refuse to buy this book.I'm looking for another book on the topic.

Including over 180 table and figures, the book is practical and it is easy to use both for studying and handbook.

The tables seem to be a compilation of material parameters and constants, useful and convenient for any optoelectronic device modeling, some of which are hard to find on other books. Many simulation results are given along with real device measurements from latest device research projects.

Editorial Review

Product Description

The commercial development of novel semiconductor devices requires that their properties be examined as thoroughly and rapidly as possible. These properties are investigated by obtaining numerical solutions of the highly nonlinear coupled set of equations which govern their behaviour. In particular, the existence of interfaces between different material layers in heterostructures means that quantum solutions must be found in the quantum wells which are formed at these interfaces.

This book presents some of the mathematical and numerical techniques associated with the investigation. It begins with introductions to quantum and statistical mechanics. Later chapters then cover finite differences; multigrids; upwinding techniques; simulated annealing; mesh generation; and the reading of computer code in C++; these chapters are self-contained, and do not rely on the reader having met these topics before. The author explains how the methods can be adapted to the specific needs of device modelling, the advantages and disadvantages of each method, the pitfalls to avoid, and practical hints and tips for successful implementation. Sections of computer code are included to illustrate the methods used.

Written for anyone who is interested in learning about, or refreshing their knowledge of, some of the basic mathematical and numerical methods involved in device modelling, this book is suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, lecturers and researchers working in the fields of electrical engineering and semiconductor device physics, and for students of other mathematical and physical disciplines starting out in device modelling.

Product Description
The first comprehensive treatment of long-wavelength laser technology

Because of very strong molecular absorption between 2 mm to 1000 mm, compact semiconductor lasers in this spectral range are ideal components for a wide variety of applications ranging from ultra-sensitive detection of molecules, to the study of fine structures of molecules, to studies of the origin of the universe. However, because of the very rapid progress made in these long-wavelength semiconductor lasers in recent years, no comprehensive information covering the entire field has been available up to this point.

Long-Wavelength Infrared Semiconductor Lasers fills the need for a reference that covers the vast scope of coherent semiconductor sources that emit in this important spectral region. Written by today’s foremost experts in the field, the book covers the latest knowledge in the areas of:

  • Quantum cascade lasers
  • Interband mid-infrared lasers fabricated from InGaAs,antimonides, and lead-salt materials
  • Hot-hole lasers
  • Photomixers

Researchers, application engineers, graduate students, and others who develop mid- to far-infrared emitters and use them for spectroscopy, astrophysics, environmental monitoring, and process control will find Long-Wavelength Infrared Semiconductor Lasers a necessary resource. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Product Description

Using the continuum of interface-induced gap states (IFIGS) as a unifying theme, Mönch explains the band-structure lineup at all types of semiconductor interfaces. These intrinsic IFIGS are the wave-function tails of electron states, which overlap a semiconductor band-gap exactly at the interface, so they originate from the quantum-mechanical tunnel effect. He shows that a more chemical view relates the IFIGS to the partial ionic character of the covalent interface-bonds and that the charge transfer across the interface may be modeled by generalizing Pauling?s electronegativity concept. The IFIGS-and-electronegativity theory is used to quantitatively explain the barrier heights and band offsets of well-characterized Schottky contacts and semiconductor heterostructures, respectively.

Product Description
During the 1970s, Japan supplanted the United States as the world leader in steel production, automobile manufacturing, and consumer electronics. Are the Japanese poised to repeat these successes in the semiconductor industry? This question has vast potential significance, because semiconductor technology holds the key to competitiveness in high technology, one of America's last bastions of industrial supremacy. This book, the product of years of joint research by a multidisciplinary team of American and Japanese scholars, analyzes the strengths and weaknesses of each country's semiconductor industry with reference to three major areas: technological innovation; the role of government, not only in specific policies directed toward the semiconductor industry, but also in the broader context of industrial policy, government-business relations, and the two political systems; and the influence of financial institutions, ties between banks and businesses, and corporate financing. The book provides, in short, a broad yet in-depth analysis of emerging industrial competition in high technology between the world's two largest market economies.This is the first book in the series ISIS Studies in International Policy, sponsored by the International Strategic Institute at Stanford. ...
