X488: Semiconductor Devices for IC Design

 

This course provides an extremely important, in-depth and comprehensive understanding of semiconductor devices, enabling you to cope with ever-increasing bandwidths of state-of-the-art designs. A broad range of topics in BJT and MOS technologies is covered, with an emphasis on delivering an inspiring perspective involving physical concepts, operation principles, second-order effects, and modeling and simulation. The project options cover nanoelectronics—transistor scaling & future trends, recent breakthrough and real world issues in CMOS nanotechnology ranging from 90nm down to 22nm and future trends in the statistical IC design in nanoelectronics.

 
 

X490: IC Filters and Oscillators

 

Integrated analog filters, oscillators, and multivibrators are a very significant category of building blocks in a circuit designer’s effort to develop an analog module for implementing many applications in signal processing or wireless communications. Topics include feedback, filters, oscillators, and multivibrators. The scope of the individual research projects includes switch-capacitor circuits, continuous-time filters, and VCOs for PLL applications. The instructor will guide you to choose a practical research topic which can be implemented in the real-world applications for frequency synthesizers or televisions.

 
 

X489: Fundamental Analog ICs

 

Gain the competitive advantage by learning how to analyze, simulate, and design a CMOS analog integrated-circuit. This course is intended for working professionals who have no strong foundation on analog design, but are interested in either upgrading their knowledge and skills or redirecting career development in the valuable semiconductor market. This course covers basic concepts, practices, and design skills used for analog ICs. Lectures covered include: Basic current mirrors, high-performance current mirrors, single-stage CMOS amplifiers, differential amplifiers, output stages, and short-circuit protection circuitry.

 
 

X491: Analog IC Design

 

Advances in signal processing, analog/digital conversion, power management, and continuingly scaling down of CMOS nanotechnology have ushered in the era of analog IC design with multi-standard challenges in the 21st century. This state-of-the-art course includes stability of feedback, frequency compensation, multistage OPAMPs, and CMOS OPAMP designs with HSPICE. You are required to work on a research project which scope covers the design of an advanced CMOS OPAMP, a compact low-voltage low-power OPAMP, and high-performance CMOS comparators for flash ADC applications.
