    • Homework Set 4: due 2:00PM Friday 09/29
      Objectives: DC analysis of CMOS and BiCMOS circuits [100 pts]
      • Assume familiarity with basic large-signal characteristics of bipolar junction and MOS transistors.
      • CMOS means "complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor" process. BiCMOS refers to a process where both CMOS and bipolar junction transistors are available.
      • Gamma is approximately zero means that the MOS threshold voltages can be considered constant so that basic equations reviewed in class for MOS transistors apply.

    • Homework Set 3: due 2:00PM Friday 09/22
      Objectives: DC and Small-Signal analysis of Common-Source amplifier circuits
      • 25 points for each problem.

    • Homework Set 2: due 2:00PM Friday 09/15
      • [40 pts] Problem O.3 (NMOS precision current reference: tolerances and temperature drift)
      • [15 pts] Problem O.6 (Op-amp imperfections: input offset voltage and CMRR)
      • [25 pts] Problem O.8 (NMOS reference current source)
      • [20 pts] Problem O.9 (Op-amp imperfections: power supply rejection ratio PSRR)
      • Assume background on basic large-signal characteristics of BJT and MOS transistors.
      • If you need to refresh your background in introductory microelectronics, the Lecture page will include links to supplementary notes and pointers to textbook references.

    • Homework Set 1: due 12:00PM Sunday 09/10
      • Analyze op-amp imperfection
      • Get started with using LTspice for circuit simulations
        • LTspice hotkeys and commands
        • Basic familiarity with Spice simulations is assumed. If you have not used LTspice before, you are expected to look through LTspice documentation, on-line resources, or built-in Help to figure out how to work with the schematic editor, simulation options, and the waveform viewer.
