EEC110A, 110B, 140A

This course concentrates on analog circuits using CMOS technologies. After taking this course, a student should understand:
  1. Linear models for CMOS devices
  2. CMOS amplifier and reference circuits
  3. Compensation techniques for electronic linear amplifiers
  4. Simple noise-analysis techniques for CMOS amplifiers
  5. The use of the SPICE circuit-simulation program

The grades will be based on one midterm exam, one design project (for EEC210 but not for EEC189S), and one final exam. The midterm exam will be held in class on Thursday Nov. 6. The design project will be due on Thursday Nov. 20. The final exam will be held on Monday Dec. 15 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. There will be about nine homework assignments, but they will not be collected or graded. The weighting used for the final course grade will be:

Course EEC210
Project 20%

Midterm Exam 30%
Final Exam 50%
