Objectives of the course
The student will be able to design analog integrated circuits (and the analog parts of VLSI circuits). He will master the device structures and the basic circuits used in MOS technologies, as well as the basic principles underlying their correct layout.
Integrated components
MOS transistors: structures and modes of operation, large and small signal models, thermal behaviour and noise; operation in bipolar mode; standard process and layout.
Passive devices: capacitor and resistors, MOS transistor used as a resistor and as a pseudo-resistor, diodes and interconnections
Parasitic devices and parasitic effects: parasitic capacitors and resistors, leakage currents and parasitic channels, latch-up. Gate breakdown and gate protections
Basic analogue structures design tradeoffs: Amplifier, Differential Pair, Current Mirror, Cascade Stage
