Content

Students are introduced to the design and analysis of several elemental CMOS integrated circuits. The course begins with a discussion of differential amplifiers and related design aspects, including the differential pair with passive load and active load, common-mode feedback, push-pull amplifier, source-follower, folded cascode, and instrumentation amplifier. The students learn how to apply a simplified expression for the channel-length modulation effect for resistance estimation. Furthermore, they understand the circuit principles of inductorless oscillator circuits (Wien-Bridge Oscillator, Gm-C quadrature oscillator, ring oscillator, relaxation oscillator). Approaches to on-chip amplitude stabilization are discussed. Further structures of interest are circuits for NTAT, PTAT and bandgap reference generation. The students will be able to predict circuit performance using SPICE-based simulation software.
