X483: Semiconductor IC Amplifiers

 

Create a unique recipe for developing intuitive skills for analyzing microelectronic circuits – without doing lots of intricate mathematics. While some of the instructors or textbooks use the classical approach that requires a tedious derivation, which becomes more cumbersome when facing a complex circuit, this course’s approach offers an alternative by focusing on the analysis-by-inspection method. Topics covered include: low-frequency BJT and MOS amplifiers, amplifier frequency response, high-frequency analysis-by-inspection vs. SPICE simulation, and case studies/homework by which you will explore some inspiring or challenging analog circuits.

 
 

X484: Digital ICs

 

This state-of-the-art course begins with the solid understanding of digital operation principles and gradually channels into more complex entities, such as multiplexers and flash memory. Featuring in-depth illustration and broad discussions, this course distills essential concepts, SPICE verification, and design skills from CMOS, ECL, and BiCMOS logic, to memory design. This unique course provide you an opportunity working on a research project to address the compelling issues in cutting-edge technologies including embedded SRAM (eSRAM), non-volatile memory, and high-speed embedded DRAM.

 
 

X486: Fundamental Mixed-Signal Design

 

Ever-increasing applications on signal-processing such as video and wireless communications demand high speed and high resolution data converter techniques. Teaching you how to become a more professional engineer through a practical online learning of diagnosing and tackling real-world issues, Dr. Chang will arm you with the solid foundation to reach a higher standard of proficiency. This course is intended for practitioners who have industry experiences or knowledge background on electronics and are interested in upgrading their hands-on design skills in the modern techniques for the data conversion. Include data converter fundamentals, characterization, performance limitations, and Nyquist-rate D/A and A/D converters.

 
 

X487: Mixed-Signal Design

 

Completely updated to reflect the extraordinary advances in the data converters, this course sets the professional online learning standard in the IC design sphere. This course is intended for practitioners who have experience in analog design or knowledge background on electronics and are interested in upgrading their design skills in data converters. Topics include: Nyquist-rate DACs, investigation of INL and DNL, Nyquist-rate ADCs, and design issues in Nyquist-rate ADCs.

 
 

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.
