  1. Page 34, Table 2.1 the word ‘power’ in the table cells needs to be replaced with ‘V/I’

  2. Page 39: Equation 2.15 should be:

    \[A_{i}=\frac{I_{\ell }}{I_{s}}=\frac{1}{A\frac{Z_{\ell }}{Z_{s}}+B\frac{1}{Z_{s}}+CZ_{\ell }+D}.\]
  3. Page 44: Caption of Figure 2.22 should be:

    Network models of amplifiers that have at least one nonzero transmission-1 matrix parameter.

    1. Left: High-level model for amplifiers having \(A\neq 0\).
    1. Right: Voltage-controlled voltage source (VCVS): \(B=C=D=0\).
    2. Left: High-level model for amplifiers having \(B\neq 0\).
    1. Right: Voltage-controlled current source (VCCS): \(A=C=D=0\).
    2. Left: High-level model for amplifiers having \(C\neq 0\).
    1. Right: Current-controlled voltage source (CCVS): \(A=B=D=0\).
    2. Left: High-level model for amplifiers having \(D\neq 0\).
    1. Right: Current-controlled current source (CCCS): \(A=B=C=0\).
  4. Page 141: Equation 4.176 should be:

    \[\frac{g_m}{I_{DS}}=\frac{1}{n\,U_T}\]
  5. Chapter 5:

    The CS stage operating point and device characteristics should be simulated using the library file CMOS18-0.lib. The figures in the book are generated with this library.

  6. Page 163:

    1. Text in example 5.1 below th listing of the circuit file should be:

      \(V_{GS_{Q}}=616.34139176mV\)

    2. Netlist file at the bottom of the page should be CSbiased0_9V-10uA.cir.

  7. Page 166:

    1. Netlist file at the top of the page should be CSbiased0_9V-10uAViIo.cir.
    2. Netlist file at the bottom of the page should be CSbiased0_9V-10uAViVo.cir.
  8. Page 342: Equation 10.31 should be:

    \[A_v=\frac{V_{\ell}}{V_s}=\frac{R_a+R_b}{R_b}\]
  9. Page 388: Typo in sidenote 8:

    ‘Rourh’ should be ‘Routh’

  10. Page 425: Error in references to figures: text below Figure 12.26 should be:

    1. … (see Figure 12.27B)
    2. … (see Figure 12.27A)
  11. Page 427: References to example 7.3 should be replaced with references to example 11.3.

  12. Page 431: Reference to example 7.3 should be replaced with reference to example 11.3.

  13. Page 437: Reference to example 8.10 should be replaced with reference to example 12.10.

  14. Page 439: Reference to example 8.8 should be replaced with reference to example 12.8.

  15. Page 440: Reference to example 8.8 should be replaced with reference to example 12.8.

  16. Page 443: Caption of Figure 12.50 should be:

    Small-signal equivalent circuit of a current-driven basic amplification stage driving an RC load.

  17. Page 444:

    1. Reference to example 7.3 should be replaced with reference to example 11.3.

    2. Text below Figure 12.51: If the poles are well separated, etc, should be:

      If the poles are well separated (\(C_3 \gg C_2\)) and (\(R_2 \gg R_3\)), their frequencies can be estimated as discussed in section 18.5.3: \(p_2\approx -\frac{1}{(R_2+R_3)C_3}\) and \(p_3\approx -\frac{1}{R_3C_2}\).

  18. Page 445: Numeric error in Example 12.15:

    \(R_z=6.046\) k \(\Omega\)

    This should also be modified in the circuit file. It results in different frequencies of the poles and zeros listed on page 446. The new dominant pole is created at -0.89Hz.

  19. Page 446: Reference to example 8.15 should be replaced with reference to example 12.15.

  20. Page 447: Reference to example 8.15 should be replaced with reference to example 12.15.

  21. Page 448:

    1. Reference to example 8.15 should be replaced with reference to example 12.15.
    2. Expression in Figure 12.55 should be: \(\omega_z=\frac{1}{R_bC}\)
  22. Page 454: Reference to example 4, and reference to example 7.4 should be replaced with reference to example 11.4.
