This short course will develop a fundamental understanding of MOS devices and analog circuits. It will be delivered using a blend of online video lectures, design and simulation lab demonstrations, and daily online support. Online support will be available to attendees for 2 weeks after the conclusion of the course.
Above dates are placeholders. Actual dates to be confirmed
Develop a fundamental understanding of MOS devices
Analyse CMOS analog building blocks & amplifier circuits
Gain intuitive know-how with circuit design and simulation lab demonstrations
Who is the course for?
The Analog IC Design short course is ideal for junior and early career analog/mixed-signal design engineers who wish to acquire a fundamental knowledge of MOS devices and circuits in a relatively short timeframe. However, the module will also meet the needs of more experienced engineers in other roles, for example digital system design engineers, verification engineers, physical design engineers, test engineers, or engineers who simply want to acquire a deeper understanding of MOS devices & circuits.
Day 1: MOS device fundamentals
Day 2: Fundamental MOS circuit building blocks
Day 3: Analysis and design of single stage amplifiers
Day 4: Analysis & design of differential amplifiers and OTAs
Day 5: Introduction to the analysis & design of op-amp circuits
