This course gives students the opportunity to learn the basics of the design and the characterization of analog circuits. Therefore basic circuitry (. differential pair, current and voltage references) has to be designed with standard industry-tools (Cadence, Matlab). The students have to develop the full schematic diagram and dimension the device parameters. Afterwards the circuitry has to be assembled with discrete devices and the functionality has to be tested. The device and circuit parameters have to be determined and evaluated with test circuits and measurement equipment. Familiarization with CAD environment, PVT (Process, Voltage, and Temperature) variation, Transistor Characterization.
