Course Outline

The subject of this course is the analysis and design of analog CMOS integrated circuits. Simple modelling techniques are used to gain a better understanding of the functions of the circuits. Intuitive design methods, quantitative performance measures and practical circuit limitations are emphasized. Circuit performance is predicted by means of both hand calculations and computer simulations. The course contains a review of device modelling, dc and small signal properties of single- and multi-stage amplifiers, followed by the study of biasing circuits, current mirrors, and active loads, differential pairs and operational amplifiers. Next, frequency response characteristics of amplifiers will be examined. If time permits, other topics such as switched-capacitor circuits, analog-to-digital (A/D) and digital-to-analog (D/A) converters fundamentals (Nyquist-rate and oversampling), oscillators, and phase-locked loops (PLLs) will be discussed.
