Objective of the course – aims of the course unit:|
The aim of the course is to provide an overview of modern methods for analysis and design of discrete and integrated electronic circuits.
Objective of the course – learning outcomes and competences:|
Principles of classical circuit simulation, modeling with VHDL-AMS, approximate symbolic analysis, analysis of transmission-line circuits, signal integrity, analysis of switched circuits. Optimization. Basics of analog integrated circuit design in CMOS technology.
Course contents (annotation):|
Computer modeling of electronic circuits: Spice-class simulators, steady-state calculation, approximate symbolic analysis, system modeling with VHDL-AMS, transmission-line circuits, signal integrity analysis in discrete and integrated applications, simulation of switched circuits.
Analog integrated circuit design: CMOS technology, practical exercise– design of transconductance operating amplifier, analysis of special problems (ESD protection, latch-up, EMC of integrated circuits).
Circuit optimization: formulation of objective function, local and global methods, multicriterial problems.
