Course Description
Learn the industry-standard tools for tomorrow’s solutions. Gain the hands-on experience using SPICE to simulate, verify, examine, and design microelectronic circuits for a wide variety of practical applications in the analog and digital realms. Illustrating the concepts and techniques to leverage the simulation tool, this course offers a broad coverage ranging from semiconductor devices to analog and digital ICs, provides you an opportunity to learn how to develop input files which can reflect the transistor-level models and advances you to a higher level of proficiency when access to both efficient and effective instruction is not available. You can also leverage what you learn from this course to conduct an optional research project covering advanced bias techniques, advanced comparators to eliminate clock-feed through errors and input offset voltage, and sequential digital circuits, such as master-slave D flip-flops and C²MOS latch with the pipelined architecture. Providing a comprehensive tour for circuit simulation techniques, this unique course will bring you a truly interactive online learning experience.
