Prerequisites:

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.

Texts:

  • 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.
