241 Cory Hall

Discussion Sections:

Section 201:  Friday, 2:00pm - 3:00pm, 299 Cory Hall
Section 202:  Wednesday, 2:30pm - 3:40pm, 299 Cory Hall
These sessions will be conducted by Nandish Mehta (GSI).

Laboratory Sections:

Lab 101:  Thursday, 8:00am - 11:00pm, 125 Cory Hall

These lab sessions will be conducted by Nandish Mehta.


The prerequisites for this course are EE105 and some aspects of EE 20N. It is assumed that you are familiar with the following topics:

  • Basic network theory
  • Basic linear systems theory (Fourier and Laplace transforms, Bode plots)
  • The use of small-signal models in the analysis and design of BJT and MOS amplifier circuits
  • Analysis of single- and multi-transistor amplifiers with BJTs and MOS (including common-emitter (source), common-collector (drain), common-base (gate), cascode, cascade, darlington, etc.)
  • Elementary semiconductor physics and device operation for pn junctions, bipolar junction transistors (BJTs), and MOS field-effect transistors (MOSFETs)

Familiarity with integrated circuit fabrication techniques is helpful, but not necessary. We will review IC fabrication techniques whenever needed.


  • Required:
    • B. Razavi, Design of Analog CMOS Integrated Circuits,  1st Edition, McGraw Hill, 2001.
    • Various material to be distrbuted throughout the course.

  • Recommended Reading:
    • Gray, Hurst, Lewis, Meyer, Analysis and Design of Analog Integrated Circuits,   5th Edition, John Wiley & Sons, 2009.
    • NOTE:  This text was used for previous renditions of this course, so is still very relevant as supplemental reading, especially for MOS circuit design.
