ECE 5984 Advanced Analog Integrated Circuit Design

Instructor: Dr. Yang (Cindy) Yi
Office: 361 Durham Hall

Teaching Assistant: Kangjun Bai

Office: 477 Whittemore Hall


Course Description: 

With a focus on Complementary Metal–Oxide–Semiconductor (CMOS) technology, this course will cover the analog and mixed-signal Integrated Circuits (ICs) design, and techniques to analyze and optimize performance metrics, such as: speed, area, power and signal integrity. Clocking, interconnect and scaling issues of ICs will also be discussed. Selected topics from other advanced topics such as Op Amp and Comparator, Voltage References, Integrated Filter, analog to digital converter (ADC), digital to analog converter (DAC), and phase-locked loop (PLL) will be covered. To familiarize the students with the realities of design complexities and layout environment, they will get exposure to Computer Aided Design (CAD) tools in the following levels – schematic, layout, extraction and circuit simulation through labs and projects. The course will also cover advanced topics including ICs’ high frequency performance issues, emerging nano-devices, advanced fabrication technologies, three dimension (3D) ICs, and neuromorphic computing.
