Syllabus
Prerequisites:
Target skills and knowledge:: The aim of the course is to learn the theoretical basis and to experiment in laboratory the CAD-assisted methodology for the design of analog, mixed-signal and radiofreqeuncy integrated circuits. At the end of the course, each student is expected to be able to: (i) translate system-level specifications into circuit-level design constraints; (ii) exploit the design degrees of freedom in order to optimize the circuit main figures of merit, like area, power, noise performance; (iii) proficently use the state-of-the-art CAD tools available in the lab to carry-on the front-to-back design of a realistic analog integrated circuit.
Course unit contents:
Planned learning activities: Two-port model for the amplifier. Small-signal model and figures of merit of MOSFET device. Design methodology based on the transconductance-bias current ratio.

Single-stage amplifiers. Current mirrors. Mismatch analysis. Noise in integrated circuits. One- and two-stage operational transconductance amplifiers (OTA). Feedback in operational amplifiers. Stability analysis. Current and voltage references.

Circuits for radiofrequency (RF) applications. RLC resonant networks. Low-noise amplifiers. Mixers. Voltage-controlled oscillators.
