ECE 595B - CMOS Analog IC DesignLecture Hours: 3 Credits: 3
Experimental Course Offered: Fall 2007
Prerequisites: ECE 255 Concurrent Prerequisites: ECE 455
Requisites by Topic:
Prerequisites: General knowledge of terminology and concepts from undergraduate courses in circuit design and microelectronics; familiarity with SPICE. Concurrent Prerequisites: General knowledge of terminology and concepts from undergraduate courses in circuit design and microelectronics; familiarity with SPICE.
The course covers general topics in CMOS analog IC design; biasing, noise, single stage amplifiers, differential amplifiers, OP-Amp, OTA, frequency domain analysis, active filter, oscillator, and PLL. While the focus of the course is on CMOS IC design, design in bipolar and BiCMOS technologies are introduced as well. A design project is a key component of the course. The students conduct group design projects. Process Design Kit and EDA tools are provided for the design project.
