X480: Introduction to Microelectronics

 

With the consistent advances in nanotechnology, microelectronics is indisputably one of the most influential industries in our society. Taking an application-oriented approach, the instructor will present an overview in the realm of analog and digital integrated circuits. While starting from the most frequently used and applicable semiconductor device and circuit theories, the instructor will gradually channel them into more complex circuit schematics and application modules such as amplifiers, operational amplifiers with bipolar and CMOS technologies, digital inverters, precision rectifiers, voltage regulators, and biasing techniques of amplifiers.

 
 

X481: Introduction to Microelectronic Circuits

 

This course reveals underlying concepts and industry-standard simulation tools for IC design, emphasizes the operational amplifier characteristics, and highlights the practical amplifier behaviors in the frequency domain. Designed for technical professionals, this course provides a practical blend of understanding analog circuit essence and properties through analysis-by-inspection and PSPICE simulation. Topics include basic operational amplifier (OPAMP) circuits and applications, s-domain analysis, bandwidth and slew rate limitations, and analyzing frequency limitations of amplifiers – a pivotal foundation for advancing to more intricate IC design topics such as oscillators and filters.

 
 

X481.1: Introduction to Semiconductor Devices

 

Working from the essential knowledge of semiconductors, the instructor illustrates some industry jargons, such as energy bandgap and minority carriers, and transforms them to powerful concepts that unveil the mysterious behaviors of semiconductor devices. Topics include: intrinsic and extrinsic semiconductors, carrier transport, and PN junction. An individual research project covers controversial subjects: ultimate limits of integrated electronics, and integrated strategy for confronting commoditization in the foundry industry. You can apply those concepts to many applications, including CMOS, BJT, LED and sensors.
