This course was taught as a 5 day short course over the past 25 years at Imperial. It was improved each year as new topics were developed and over 1000 students from industry and academics have taken the course. The experience and feedback of those courses has been updated and captured in the present online offering.
The course provides a bottom-up, hierarchical approach to the subject of analog circuit and systems design using standard CMOS technologies. Simple modeling techniques are used to gain an understanding of and insight into the function of circuits. Appropriate use of the computer for simulation is discussed. Techniques suitable to enhanced performance using integrated circuit technology are used. In addition, the implications of IC fabrication are used whenever possible to associate the electrical performance with the physical attributes of the circuit.
