Principles of analog integrated circuit design in the Giga-Hertz frequency range. This course covers the fundamental understanding of high-frequency circuit building blocks such as low noise amplifiers, mixers, oscillators, phase locked loops, frequency synthesizers, clock and data recoveries, and power amplifiers. Additionally, because some of the traditional microwave building blocks such as transmission lines and distributed circuit elements are essential parts of today's high speed integrated circuits, the course briefly covers them. Throughout the course, a systematic review of advanced wireless and wireline applications is covered. The course emphasizes physical understanding and intuitive design methods as well as qualitative techniques and computer simulations. The course has collaborative class projects, based on real-world problems.

When Offered Spring.
