Class Hours - Lab Hours 3 - 0
Lecturers Paul P. Sotiriadis


The course focuses on the design and optimization principles of analog and mixed signal circuits in CMOS and BiCMOS technologies. It includes: Models of small and large signals. Systematic methodology for selecting component sizes and biasing parameters. Basic circuit structures. Operational Amplifiers and Tranconductors. Large-signal behavior. Principles of switched-capacitor circuits. Continuous-time filters. Data converters. Sigma-Delta Modulators. Telecommunication circuits. Etc.
The course includes a final design project.

Prerequisites: Electronics I, II and III with a score of at least 8/10 and Mathematics (differential equations, linear algebra). Excellent understanding of signal analysis in the frequency domain as well as basic knowledge of signal processing and automatic control (stability, dynamic systems, etc.). Interest in designing integrated circuits.
