I'm trying to make this as non-opinion-based as possible.
There are a lot of textbooks and resources for how transistors, and various things that are made of transistors, work. However, in all my searching, the only tutorial I've ever seen for actual IC design is this one. In my initial perusing, however, it seems fairly "off the top of my head"-ish, as in, "I think I'll talk about this, now."
Are there any other such IC design tutorials? I'm not even asking for a ranking, just if they exist in the first place.
Edit: in college, I took a course called "Analog & Mixed-Signal Integrated Circuit Design"; most of our time was spent talking about different types of op-amps and their different merits and limitations. The final project was to design an op-amp, using one of the four types mentioned in the class (two-stage, telescopic, folded-cascade, and current mirror) to meet one of four different sets of design specs. But it just seemed like we were thrown into the deep end with an understanding of what swimming was but with no idea how to do a breaststroke.
Essentially, in IC design, there are a lot of knobs to twist to accomplish your goal; so many knobs, in fact, that it gets a little overwhelming at times, and I don't know where to start. I was just wondering if there were any resources out there, not for how these IC and IC blocks work, but how to design them and use them effectively.
