Electronic circuits are indispensable technology in today’s modern society and are used in most industrial fields. It is rare
that electronic circuits to be realized as stand-alone active devices, and is rather realized as several module ICs. This
course will focus on circuit analysis and design utilizing IC modules based on electronic circuit information learned in undergraduate
courses. Examples of large-scale circuits which are actually used will be addressed, and lectures will be conducted relating
to their operating principles.
Purpose of class
In this course, the aim is to understand design procedure for the operational transconductance amplifier(OTA) using MOS-FET.
And, also, the course aims to understand the application of the
Goals and objectives
Be able to explain the basic principles of the analog CMOS integrated circuits
Be able to explain the design theory of the linear amplifier
Be able to explain the switched capacitor circuits for A / D converter
HW assignments (Including preparation and review of the class.)
Amount of Time Required
A comparison of bipolar technology and MOS technology
MOS device current-voltage characteristics
First stage amplifier circuits (1) source ground circuit
Relationship between 'Goals and Objectives' and 'Course Outcomes'
Evaluation method and criteria
The score is evaluated by 10 reports among 14 reports submitted in the class. In each report, the students have to answer
more than two thirds questions. When the students pass the class, they can design the gain and the frequency response of the
MOS-FET operational amplifier.
