Teacher in charge
João Carlos Palma Goes
The main course objective is to introduce the student to the design and project of analog microelectronics circuits based on advanced CMOS technology. The student will learn, through hands-on lab, the development process flow of these type of circuits.
I- CMOS technology and MOS amplifiers: Origin of the integrated circuits, MOS technology, available devices in CMOS, models and operating regions; cut-off, weak-inversion, moderate/strong inversion, linear, triode and saturation regions; body and channel modulation effects; Biasing of MOS amplifiers using current-mirrors;1.2.Small-signal analysis for low and medium/high frequencies; CMOS basic building-blocks; Single-stage and two-stage operational amplifiers with compensation. Introduction to noise analysis: definition of noise power spectral density; thermal noise and sampled KT/C noise; 1/f noise; Switched-capacitor (SC) circuits.
