The class deals with the analysis and design of integrated circuits in CMOS technologies with an emphasis on analog circuits. It will cover both fundamentals as well as the practice of analog circuit design, with emphasis on circuit performance evaluations using hand calculations and simulations. Topics include MOS transistor operation, single-stage amplifiers, differential amplifiers, multi-stage amplifiers, and various current mirrors. An accompanying lab will provide the students with the opportunity to practice what was learned in class through designing, simulating, building and testing of real-life systems.
