Course objectives: To give the student a firm grounding in the analysis and design of MOS and bipolar analog amplifier circuits. Topics covered: MOSFET: NMOS and PMOS transistors; Load-line analysis of a simple NMOS amplifier; Bias circuits; Small-signal equivalent circuits; Common-source amplifiers; Source followers Single-stage amplifier configurations with emphasis on MOS, other technologies (e.g. BJT) for comparison. Differential and multi-stage amplifiers, cascode, Darlington connections, complementary symmetry output stages. Large signal analysis. Introduction to power amplifier classes.
