ECEN 5837 - Mixed-Signal IC Design

Catalog Data ECEN 5837 (3). Mixed-Signal IC Design Lab Software laboratory course extends the concepts developed in ECEN 4827 to full design and layout of mixed analog and digital custom integrated circuits. Assignments explore implementation of analog to digital and digital to analog converters, and final project developes a full custom IC for a target application.
Credits and Design 3 credit hours. Elective course.
Prerequisite(s) ECEN 5827, Analog IC Design
Textbook Allen and Holberg, CMOS Analog Circuit Design, Oxford, 2002.
Course Objectives This course is the second in a two-course series (the first course is ECEN 5827) on integrated circuit design, which together provide a complete set of fundamental concepts and skills for the growing number of students who wish to pursue a career in the semiconductory industry. Graduate students who wish to specialize in research projects related to IC design and power electronics will be required to take both courses in the sequence.
Topics Covered
  1. Fully-differential op-amsp, simulation and layout
  2. Comparators
  3. Switched capacitor circuits
  4. Nyquist rate DAC
  5. Nyquist rate ADC
  6. Over-sampling converters
