Course Title: Analog CMOS Integrated Circuit Design

 

 

Course Description:

 

Course material includes the study of the operating principles of analog CMOS integrated circuits. Brief description of the physics of MOS devices, linearized models of MOSFETs, and circuit design techniques for realizing CMOS operational amplifiers, current references, voltage references,etc. Switched-capacitor filter design and non-filtering applications of switched-capacitor circuits such as analog-to-digital converters, comparators, and gain amplifiers. Non-ideal effects of switched-capacitor circuits and technology limitations. Use of Mentor Graphics computer-aided design software.

 

Prerequisites:

 

Students must have knowledge of the Mentor Graphics applications: Design Architect, Accusim, and ICstation.

 

Students should also have taken ECE484 and should have had an analog electronics course as an undergraduate.
