Long Title: ANALOG INTEGRATED CIRCUITS
Department: Electrical & Computer Eng.
Grade Mode: Standard Letter
Course Type: Lecture
Credit Hours: 3
Restrictions:
Must be enrolled in one of the following Level(s):
Graduate
Prerequisite(s): ELEC 342
Description: This course starts with an in-depth study of physics of P-N junctions and CMOS transistors. It covers transistor level analysis and design of analog circuits, with emphasis on intuitive design methods, quantitative performance measures, and practical circuit limitations. Students use hand calculations and computer simulations to compare the results. This course discusses low-frequency behavior of single-stage and multistate amplifiers, current sources, active loads, operational amplifiers, as well as supply and temperature and independent biasing. It also covers high-frequency response of amplifiers, feedback in electronic circuits, stability feedback amplifiers, and noise in electronic circuits.
