Low-power analog IC design

EE-520

Lecturer(s) :

Enz Christian

Language:

English

Summary

This course presents the design of low-power analog CMOS integrated circuits. The techniques are based on the concept of inversion coefficient that can be used as the main design parameter for the optimization of figures-of-merit applied to circuits including amplifiers, filters and oscillators.

Content

  1. Introduction
  2. CMOS Technology Scaling
  3. Modeling of the MOS Transistor for Low-power Design
  4. The Concept of Inversion Coefficient and Gm/ID Design Methodology
  5. Optimization of Basic Figures-of-merit
  6. Amplifiers (OTAs and OPAMPs)
  7. Offset and 1/f Noise Reduction Techniques
  8. Continuous-time (CT) Filters Design
  9. Switched-capacitors (SC) Filters Design
  10. Oscillators
