Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

To understand the basic building blocks of analog integrated circuits. To understand the large and small signal transistor models, learn to design analog integrated circuits and to analyse them. Learn to design an operational amplifier with CMOS technology using the CAD design tools.

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

The course includes single stage amplifiers, differential amplifier, operational amplifiers, comparators, analog multiplier, current biasing circuits and voltage reference circuits. Also noise, linearity and power supply rejection of the operational amplifiers are discussed. A CMOS operational amplifier is designed during the course.
