This book discusses state-of-the-art power management techniques of
modern electronic appliances relying on such Very Large Scale Integration
(VLSI) chips as CPUs and DSPs.
It also covers specific circuit design issues and their implications,
including original derivation of important expressions.
This book is geared toward systems and applications, although it
also gets into the specific technical aspects of discrete and integrated
solutions, like the analysis of circuits within the power chips which
power PCs and other modern electronics.
The first half of this book is a good complement to classic semiconductor
text books because it deals with the same complex issues in a
more conversational way. It avoids completely the use of complex
expressions and minimizing the use of formulas to useful ones, that
allow us to plug values in and get an actual result.
The second half of the book is a broad review of the modern technology
landscape seen through the eyes of the power management engineer,
continually challenged by the rising complexity of modern
