KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The course aims to provide the necessary knowledge for designing the CMOS integrated circuits. To this end the fundamental technological processes for the fabrication of Si devices, the current and high performance low frequency amplifier topologies, the main low frequency filtering techniques will be studied.CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The course is intended to train the students so that they acquire the capability of applying the knowledge on electron devices to the design specifications, to the selection and sizing of circuits to obtain the desired performance, to the using of CAD software tools.TRANSVERSAL SKILLS:
The course provides a multidisciplinary background on semiconductor physics, analog circuits, analog filtering techniques, which can be spent in the fields of biomedical engineering, telecommunications, automatic control and information technology in general.
Elements of semiconductor physics for device electronics: fundamental equations, p-n junction, MOS transistor, drain current of the MOSFET and small signal model. Processes for the fabrication of Silicon devices: wafer production, Lithography, Etching, Diffusion, Ion implantation, Front-end, Back-end, CMOS technology. SPICE MOSFET model: second order effects. Design elements of elementary CMOS analog circuits: single stage amplifiers, differential amplifier, circuits for biasing, Operational amplifiers single-stage and two-stage. Design elemnts of analog filters. Switched-capacitor Filters: bilinear transformation, SC-filters low-Q and high-Q, CMOS switch, non-ideality of switch and Op-Amp.
