I have read books microelectronic circuits sedra, ken martins analog integrated circuit design and now i am going to start read next book. So which is better and it is good if text is easy to read: options analysis and design of analog integrated circuits gray or razavis design of analog cmos intgrated circuits. I think those books are very same kind of....

Re: which is better?

I think you could read Razavi first, since it would give you all information u need for MOS design nicely. Although if you want to be thorough in MOS and BJT design both, you can read Gray and MEyer then. The thing is reading Razavi and then Gray and Meyer makes sense and would really be beneficial, although doing the opposite would not make much sense.

Well... leme tell u m6y experience.

I used to study sedra. It really well suited me. Then I went on to Gray. I got stuck!

Gray's book is a precious book but assumes u have a good understanding of Semiconductor physics specifically in the opening chapters.

Now I hear that Razavi does not assume u to have such backgraound knowledge.
