Content and learning outcomes
The main focus of the course is on the following topics:
- Introduction to integrated electronic systems
- Integration solutions and specific issues for integration
- MOSFET device operation and models (large- and small-signal, low and high frequency)
- Basic analogue building blocks (amplifiers, current sources, voltage references) of an integrated circuit (IC)
- Frequency response
- Operational amplifiers (opamps)
- Stability and frequency compensation of operational amplifiers
- Layout techniques
Intended learning outcomes
After passing the course, students should be able to:
- develop and use large- and small-signal (low and high frequency) MOSFET models and noise models
- use large- and small-signal and noise analysis, frequency response, stability and frequency compensation methods for basic CMOS analogue integrated circuits
- evaluate which circuit architecture is appropriate for a specific application
- design, simulate and analyze basic CMOS analogue integrated circuits and use professional CAD tools
- write a report and make an oral presentation on designed circuits and their performance
in order to
- obtain a good understanding of analogue integrated systems, and basic methods and technologies for designing analogue integrated systems.
Literature and preparations
Completed courses in analogue electronics equivalent to IE1207/IE1202 and in digital circuits equivalent to IE1204/IE1205.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- PRO1 - Project, 3.0 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
- TEN1 - Examination, 4.5 credits, grading scale: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
