Analysis and Design of VLSI Analog-Digital Interface Circuits

NTU NEEI6351 / Berkeley EECS247

Spring 2007




§         (1/2) Welcome to NTU 247 Spring 2007! You may want to check back often for updates and announcements.

§         (1/4) Homework #1 is posted. It is due on Thurs. 1/18 5:00pm PST.

(This homework requires the “tf” and “bode3” functions from MATLAB. Make sure your version of MATLAB is equipped with those two functions by running the linked .m file.)

§         (1/18) Homework #2 is posted. It is due on Thurs. 2/1 5:00pm PST.

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), PSPICE, 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 EECS 140 and EECS 142. Circuit simulation with SPICE-like simulators. A basic course in signal processing (Laplace transform, sampled data systems, filter synthesis) is very helpful.
