Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

Through this course the students can perform studies that cover:

Device and noise, CMOS opamps and current mirrors, voltage comparators, sample/hold circuits, bandgap voltage references, switched-capacitor (SC) circuits, continuous-time (CT) circuits, Nyquist and oversampling DACs, Nyquist and oversampling ADCs.

Intended learning outcomes *

The aim of this course is to provide an understanding of, and experience with, the concepts, analysis and design of low voltage low power analog and mixed signal integrated circuits in CMOS technology. After this course the students should be able to:

  • Explain the basic design concepts for low power mixed signal VLSI circuit in CMOS technology.
  • Apply the knowledge in low-power analog and mixed-signal VLSI circuit analysis and simulation.
  • Identify the critical parameters that affect the analog and mixed-signal VLSI circuits performance.
  • Design low-power analog and mixed-signal VLSI circuits by using CMOS processes.
