Overview of devices available to analog integrated-circuit designers in modern CMOS and BiCMOS processes: resistors, capacitors, MOS transistors, and bipolar transistors. Basic building blocks for linear analog integrated circuits: single-stage amplifiers, current mirrors, and differential pairs. Transistor-level design of linear analog integrated circuits, such as operational amplifiers and operational transconductance amplifiers. Layout techniques for analog integrated circuits. Throughout the course, emphasis is placed on design-oriented analysis techniques.
When Offered Fall.
Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: ECE 3150.
- Develop an understanding of device and circuit theory sufficient to estimate the low and high frequency behavior of linear circuits, including noise.
- Develop an intuition for analog circuit behavior in both linear and nonlinear operation.
- Be able to calculate transfer functions and Bode plots and use them to estimate the stability of an electronic system.
- Develop an ability to parse large circuits and systems into smaller, analyzable subunits, analyze them, and then apply the understanding gained from that process to analyze the system as a whole, including for noise and variation.
- Implement a circuit or subsystem at the transistor level to solve an open-ended problem and effectively communicate the constraints and critical aspects of that system.
Regular Academic Session. Choose one lecture and one discussion.
