Course specific prerequisites

This course builds on material covered in the courses Fundamentals of digital systems and computers, Theory and logic design of switching circuits and Electrical circuits and fields or similar courses.

Aim

The integrated circuit represents the physical core of almost all electronic systems. As a result of many years of intense development towards decreasing transistor and wire sizes, it is today possible to integrate hundreds of millions transistors on a single microchip. This presents electronic system designers with unprecedented possibilities with respect to functionality and performance.

To be able to design efficient electronic systems that can harness the inherent possibilities for functionality and performance, the designer needs not only be skilled in industrial design methods for the system level, but she/he should also be proficient in electronic circuit design. The purpose of this course it to give the Computer Science and Engineering student the experience from and knowledge in basic electronic circuits that is required in order to design integrated electronic systems.

Goal

The student shall gain insight in the electronic circuits that constitute digital as well as analog circuitry, integrated circuits as well as printed circuit boards. The student shall learn basic analysis and design methods in a limited selection of electronic circuits; analog circuits, digital circuits and wires. Furthermore, the course aims to give students an overview of contemporary issues in circuit design, and focus is put on integrated circuits and so-called System-on-Chip (SoC) technology.

Content
