ET4252 Analog integrated circuit design

Topics: Introductory course in analog circuit synthesis for microelectronic designers
An introductory course in analog circuit synthesis for microelectronic designers.

Topics include: Review of analog design basics (i.e., noise analysis, frequency response, feedback and stability, biasing); transistor modeling for circuit design; linear and non-linear analog building blocks: harmonic oscillators, (static and dynamic) translinear circuits, wideband amplifiers, filters; physical layout (e.g., device matching) for robust analog circuits; design of voltage sources and references ranging from simple voltage dividers to high-performance bandgap references, and current source implementations from a single resistor to high-quality references based on negative-feedback structures.

Quality aspects, such as accuracy, output/phase noise and impedance levels are treated within the context of power consumption and supply voltage requirements.

This course is recommended for students intending to take RF IC Design (ET4254), Analog-to-Digital Conversion (ET4278), Nanoelectronics (ET4253) or Nyquist-Rate Data Converters (ET4369).

Study Goals

To know, understand and be able to analyze and design (synthesize):
  • resonator (LC) second-order oscillators
  • static translinear circuits
  • dynamic translinear circuits
  • voltage references
  • bandgap references
  • current sources
