This is one of the best books on CMOS IC simulation with LTspice which I would like to recommend for researchers and students. During my M.Sc. thesis this book had helped me so much to learn the fundamentals. I would like to express my deepest gratitude and respect towards the author of this book Professor Erik Bruun.
