READ MORE ABOUT THIS COURSE

About this course:

The primary building block of all analog and mixed signal integrated circuits is operational amplifiers (Op-Amps). Amplifiers are the main components in anything analog from analog to digital converters (ADC) to digital to analog converters (DAC), filters, transmitters, receivers, transceivers and more. This course provides fundamental understanding of analog CMOS technologies, modeling, device characterization, and CMOS circuit design. It covers the application, design and operation of operational amplifiers including building blocks of amplifiers such as current source and sink circuitries, current mirrors, bias circuitries, differential input stage, gain stage and output stage. It also covers the frequency response analysis of operational amplifiers. It concludes with step-by-step design instruction of op-amps to meet the design specification.
