BiCMOS circuitry: the best of both worlds

  title={BiCMOS circuitry: the best of both worlds},
  author={B. Dal Santo},
  journal={IEEE Spectrum},
The growing use of BiCMOS circuits, which benefit from the combination of low CMOS power consumption and high bipolar speed, is examined. The tradeoffs that BiCMOS circuits entail and the drawbacks that have hindered their wide adoption, especially for digital applications, are discussed. The growing opportunity for BiCMOS, as CMOS ICs have become more… CONTINUE READING
