Analog Integrated Circuit Design,
This class covers analysis and design
of Analog and Non-Linear Integrated Circuits. The
course consists of two sides of dealing with Analog Integrated circuits: (a) Analyzing a
given Analog Integrated circuits through homework exercises and midterm exams. (2)
Designing Analog integrated circuit is accomplished by a major final project.
The emphasis of the course material will be on CMOS analog circuits such as current
sources, active load, bias current and voltages, differential pairs, frequency response,
feedback amplifiers, output stages, noise behavior, Miller compensation, One-stage and
CMOS operational amplifier, folded-cascode, telescopic,
high-performance, and high-speed CMOS operational
We will cover some basic Bipolar analog circuits also. We may cover band-
gap circuits and voltage references.
Finally, we will spend sometime covering material on the Analog non-linear integrated
circuits such as distortion, oscillators and phase-locked loop.
