Summary

This course covers the design of advanced analog integrated circuits, focusing on the design of switched-capacitor and continuous-time integrated filters. The objective is to be able to design integrated filters starting from the system specifications and choosing the appropriate technique.

Content

1) Background : Review of fundamental passive and active integrated components and their models.

 

2) Noise Analysis and Modeling : noise characterization; thermal noise; flicker noise; other types of noise; noise models of circuit elements; noise analysis in circuits; examples: single-stage OTA.

 

3) Fundamentals of Filter Design : types of filters; frequency and impedance normalization; filter specifications; approximation; passive synthesis; second-order sections - the biquads; high-order filter design; non-ideal effects.

 

4) Integrated Active Filters Implementations : continuous-time filters: RC-active, Gm-C filters, MOSFET-C filters; switched-capacitor filters: basic building blocks, basic operation and analysis, first-order filter, biquad filters; high-order filters: component simulation of LC ladders, operational simulation of LC ladders; non-ideal effects.
