Description of achievement and assessment methods
"The module is examinded in form of a lab performance with the following components:
• The performance of the circuits designed during the lab according to the given specification is evaluated.
• The design, its performance and presentation is presented in a 10 minutes talk (5 mins. each group member).
• The students will write a documentation of their design and its performance. This group report (10 - 15 pages)."
Electronic devices, Semiconductor physics, Basics in analog circuit design -> participation in Lecture EI74341 Mixed-Signal Electronics
Intended Learning Outcome
Upon successful completion of the lab the students are able to design a simple transistor level integrated analog circuit using Cadence according to a given specification
Starting from sizing and checking a simple CMOS circuit, in the course of the lab a complete linear power supply or a complete bandgap reference system with temperature compensation will be designed using Cadence simulation software and schematic Editor.
Teaching and learning methods
Lab with complementary lecture
Material and computers with Cadence software will be provided
