Course Description:

This course covers various aspects of the design of integrated analog and analog-digital interface electronics  at the building block and system level. Specific topics include

  • Continuous-time and sampled-data filters

  • Oversampled A/D converters

  • Nyquist rate A/D- and D/A-converters

  • Digital data receivers and equalization

Problem-specific CAD tools such as MATLAB (filter design), HSPICE, and SPECTRE will be used throughout the course.


Familiarity with analog circuit analysis (transistor models, small signal circuit analysis, frequency compensation, etc.) and building blocks (amplifiers, references, mirrors, etc.) as taught in EE140 and EE142. Circuit simulation with HSPICE. A basic course in signal processing (Laplace transform, sampled data systems, filter synthesis) is very helpful.
