MMIC Layout design guidance - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

I do not know of any single or general sources of good literature on MMIC layout. however, I do know that many of the best technqiues begin with analog layout principle, and then move on to RF layout by straight forward approaches and 3d modeling.
I would recommend "The Art of Analog layout" by Alan Hastings.
http://www.amazon.com/Art-Analog-Layout ... F8&s=books
That is a good place to start for understanding the nuances of layout with regard to sensitive IC circuits.
From there, I would recommend RF cmos design books like Tom Lee's "The design of CMOS Radio Frequency Integrated Circuits".
http://www.amazon.com/Design-Radio-Freq ... F8&s=books
I own both of these books and find then extremely useful and well written.
