18-523 Analog Integrated Circuit Design

Department:Electrical & Comp. Eng.
Prerequisites:18-321 and 18-322
Related URLs:

Some form of analog circuit design is a critical step in the creation of every modern IC. First and foremost, analog circuits act as the interface between digital systems and the real world. They act to amplify and filter analog signals, and to convert signals from analog to digital and back again. In addition, high performance digital cell design (either high speed or low power) also invokes significant analog circuit design issues. The goal of this course is to teach students some of the methods used in the design and analysis of analog integrated circuits, to illustrate how one approaches design problems in general, and to expose students to a broad cross-section of important analog circuit topologies. The course will focus on learning design through carrying out design projects. Design and implementation details of wide-band amplifiers, operational amplifiers, continuous-time filters, phase lock loops and data converters will be covered. The course will focus primarily on analog CMOS, but some aspects of BJT design will be discussed. 4 hrs. lec.
