Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Content

The most important topics in the course are:
1) The MOS transistor in analog circuits
2) Amplifier theory with feedback and compensation
3) Basic analog biuilding blocks in CMOS
4) Design of analog systems in CMOS
5) Passive components and the impact of parasitic components

Organisation

The core of the course is five laboratory assignments. These labs are computer labs done in the circuit-design tool Cadence Analog Artist. The first three labs cover amplifiers and the goal is to design and verify a two-stage operational amplifier. The labs are compulsory and carried out by students working in pairs. For each lab a pre-lab hand-in and an post-lab written lab report are to be completed. There are a number of lectures and exercise sessions. There are additional hand-in assignments.

Examination

To get the grade 3 the student has to successfully complete the hand-in assignments, lab assignments and lab reports. To earn a higher grade the student also has to take the final exam.
