EECS 522: Analog Integrated Circuits

Professor Ehsan Afshari
Professor David Wentzloff

This course requires EECS 413, Monolithic Amplifier Circuits, or an equivalent knowledge of small signal analysis, frequency response, feedback, CMOS and BJT circuit design. The course is comprised of lectures, discussions, exams, and individual design projects. It is divided into three sections:

Analog summary and overview of radio architecture, noise, distortion, oscillators, LNAs and mixers, and voltage references and biasing. Review and study of integrated circuit fabrication technologies and BJT and MOS transistor models. 

Detailed analysis and design of analog integrated circuits including power amplifiers, voltage references, voltage regulators, rectifiers, oscillators, multipliers, mixers, phase detectors and phase-locked loops. 

Students will learn to understand the operating principles and design concepts for a number of important RF IC building blocks including RF amplifiers, oscillators, mixers, and references. They will implement individual design projects in a current CMOS process. 

Semi-complete handouts will be given for all lecture material. The notes will be comprehensive but I recommend you also get the Tom Lee textbook for reference.
