This page contains information on the Graduate courses
taken by the Analog IC Design Research professors:
Device Modeling (EE5342). Device models and characterization procedures for the pn junction and
Schottky diodes, the BJT, JFET, MOSFET, HBT, and optical sources and
detectors. SPICE derived and higher level circuit simulator models will be
Frequency Circuit Design (EE5348). Design of lumped-element radio-frequency circuits operating at frequencies
to 2 GHz. Impedance-matching, s-parameter design of amplifiers and
oscillators, RF mixers. Other topics include noise theory (thermal and phase
noise) and phase-locked loops.
- Advance Electronic (EE5305). Advanced study of solid-state devices and integrated circuits. Analysis, design and simulation of analog integrated circuits including biasing, gain stages, active loads, power amplifiers, operational amplifiers and wideband amplifiers.
- Semiconductor Device Theory (EE5340). Quantum mechanics applicable to semiconductor theory. Energy band theory, density of states and effective mass theory. Intrinsic and extrinsic semiconductors, equilibrium statistics for electrons and holes. Transport, generation and recombination of excess carriers. Device equations and physics. Theory and performance of p-n and Schottky diodes, bipolar and MOS transistors.
- Analog CMOS IC design.
CMOS analog IC design and layout issues; CMOS current mirror and
opamp design; noise analysis and modeling; comparators, sample-and-holds and
voltage references; switch-capacitor circuits.
