“Analog circuit design is like chess – just because you know how the pieces move doesn’t mean you know how to play the game”. – Patrick Lahey
In this course, you will learn about the fundamentals of MOSFET, the ways to bias the transistors in triode/linear, cut-off and saturation regions. Later in the course, you will learn about transconductance Gm, which is currently being used popularly in sensor read out circuits, broadband circuits and in high speed design. The Constant-Gm circuit is extremely popular in low power circuit designs.
This course is a prerequisite for the course “CMOS Analog Circuit Design – Amplifiers with Solved Examples” and “Circuit Design for High Speed Serial Links”.
Consequently, we’re seeing analog job requisitions in several key areas including Sensor Design and Sensor interfaces, WiFi (wireless LANs and Internet access), ultra wide band technology (UWB) and power management. Demand for designers with expertise in high-speed data conversion seems to be high across a variety of industries.
