ET4252 Analog integrated circuit design

Topics: Advanced course in analog circuit synthesis for microelectronic designers

An advanced course in analog circuit synthesis for microelectronic designers.

Topics include: Review of analog design basics (i.e., noise analysis, frequency response, feedback and stability, biasing); transistor modeling for circuit design; linear and non-linear analog building blocks: high-performance analog filters, (static and dynamic) translinear circuits, wideband amplifiers; physical layout (e.g., device matching) for robust analog circuits; design of voltage sources and references ranging from simple voltage dividers to high-performance bandgap references, and current source implementations from a single resistor to high-quality references based on negative-feedback structures.

Quality aspects, such as accuracy, output noise and impedance levels are treated within the context of power consumption, chip area and supply voltage requirements.

This course is recommended for students intending to take: Nanoelectronics (ET4253), Oversampled data converters (ET4278), Analog CMOS design II (EE4525), and Nyquist-rate data converters (ET4369).
