Course Detail
Course Components:
This course is an introduction to analog integrated circuit (IC) analysis and design. The class focuses on analysis and design of elementary single- and two-transistor stages commonly used in amplifiers, comparators, sample-and-hold circuits, etc. Students learn the fundamentals of feedback, electronic noise, and gm/ID design methodology. Design-oriented analysis techniques are used to bridge the gap between analysis and design. Students perform simulation, design, and circuit optimization using Cadence and Matlab (no layout or verification required).
