Please take a look at the Textbook section for a detailed topic list.
- Main focus will be on CMOS design.
- MOS operation (weak, moderate, strong inversion),
- Basic transistor stages with low voltage supplies.
- Single ended and fully differential operational amplifier analysis and design: telescopic, folded cascode, two-stage OTA, common-mode feedback.
- Switched capacitor 2x amplifier: time-domain settling; switch design and non-idealities.
- Stability and frequency compensation techniques (differential & common mode).
- Noise in circuits; low-noise design.
- Device Mismatch and its impact on circuit performance.
- Temperature- and supply-independent biasing.
We do not formally follow a textbook but use a combination of instructor's notes and technical papers. A lot of the material is available from (see the Textbook section):

Several copies of these books will be on reserve in the Engineering Library (Mudd 4th floor).
State-of-the-art computer-aided analysis techniques are extensively used. An extensive design project is an integral part of the course.
