__Description: __

- Basic & advanced aspects of analog
integrated circuit design
- General purpose operational amplifiers as basic
example
- Enhance understanding of the trade-offs
involved in analog circuit design
- Introduce ‘real-world’ design issues like
robustness for process, voltage and temperature variations
- Use design project to let the student step
through the different stages of an analog integrated circuit (block)
design
- Basic hand-calculations and computer aided
analysis techniques are used
