The course is taught in English. The aggressive miniaturization of current and future generation electronic and communication systems, such as smartphones and tablets, combining different functions (digital, analog and RF, optical, bio-sensors, MEMS, etc.) in a very compact volume, poses tremendous design challenges. Unwanted interactions between different system parts may lead to performance degradation and malfunctioning, unless proper design strategies are applied to guarantee the Signal and Power Integrity of the system. This course provides a fundamental understanding of main signal/power deterioration causes, as well as suitable strategies aimed at robust system design and reliability.

Modalità di esame: prova scritta; prova di laboratorio;
The exam includes a Lab report and a written test. The written test consists in 5 problems (6 points each) to be solved in 90 min, open book and use of electronic calculators allowed. The Lab activity is evaluated by means of a lab report (18 points, of which 12 points measure the technical content and 6 points the quality of the report (structure, language, figures, etc)) and an oral presentation of the lab experience in front of the class (12 points, measuring the technical content and the presentation clarity). The final score of the course is the average of the points earned by the student in written and lab parts of the exam. Should a student be unable to attend the lab (e.g., because of his/her period abroad), the activity will be replaced by a project that can be handled remotely.
