An undergraduate course in basic electric circuits

Course Description
This introductory course aims to provide the necessarily background to give the students the
ability to understand, analyze and design CMOS analog circuits in VLSI-based embedded

The main aim of the course will be to learn how to analyze and build CMOS amplifiers that
are the building blocks of almost all VLSI mixed-signal systems. At every stage of the
course the students are expected to design, on paper as well as simulation, the circuits
discussed in the class. An important aspect of the course will be projects in which the
students are expected to design various types of amplifiers.

This course will be useful for those interested in analog and mixed-signal VLSI design, and
in embedded mixed-signal hardware. The course is a pre-requisite for Mixed-signal VLSI
design, and RF CMOS Circuit Design.
