Lecture: 3 hours
Lab: 3 hours
Prerequisites: EEC 110A
Analysis and design of integrated circuits. Single-stage amplifiers, cascaded amplifier stages, differential amplifiers, current sources, frequency response, and return-ratio analysis of feedback amplifiers.
Expanded Course Description:
Students will use SPICE on several of the homework assignments and in a design project.
Engineering Design Statement:
Much of this course is devoted to the modeling and analysis of electronic circuits. Because the analysis of any reasonably complex circuit is analytically intractable, the model selection, analysis techniques, and assumptions made are a major part of the design process. The students are shown how to recognize from an analysis those elements that are critical in determining the system’s performance so that they can be exploited in the design phase. Open-ended problems are used on the homeworks.
