Subject description


  • Enrollment in the study year.

Content (Syllabus outline):

  • CMOS inverter: design, implementation, transfer function, noise margins, delay, power consumption. Design of combinational and sequential CMOS circuits in different technologies.
  • Design of basic arithmetic logic blocks: adders, multipliers, shift registers. Design and implementation of memory circuits: SRAM, DRAM, DDRAM, SDRAM and others.
  • Technology implementation of complex digital integrated circuits and systems: standard cells, gate arrays, FPGA devices.
  • Design of basic analog blocks: current mirrors and current sources, current and voltage reference circuits, differential stages, output stages, differential amplifiers.
  • Influence of modern target technologies on circuit characteristics.
