“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.

You will learn

✓ Understanding the details of MOSFET characteristics
✓ Refresh the typical interview questions in MOSFETs
✓ Fundamental topics of analog circuit design
✓ Difference and Similarities between NMOS, PMOS and CMOS
✓ Transconductance Gm
✓ Understand the requirements for an analog IC designer


• Students should have an interest in the topic of analog IC design.
• There are no prerequisites. Any previous knowledge of the topic will help the student get more from the class.

This course is for

• Curious students about the devices and potential nano-engineering students
• Aspiring Analog IC designers who need to brush up their knowledge on MOSFETs and their characteristics
• Undergraduate students who are beginning to learn Analog IC Design
• Post Graduate Students who need a refresher course
Design Thinker and Analog IC Design Manager
Dr G S Javed obtained his M.S. and Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore in 2016 for his work on low power integrated instrumentation circuits for sensing applications. From 2016 to 2020, he led and managed a 15 member transceiver design team in Terminus Circuits. He worked on high-speed wireline transceivers (upto 20 Gbps) focusing on the Receiver design, high speed RO and LC PLLs (upto 16 GHz), and CT Sigma Delta ADCs. From August 2008 to July 2010, he worked as Deputy Engineer with Integrated Circuit Design Center(ICDC), Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL).He enjoys photography, travel and meeting people.
He serves as a reviewer for many IEEE Transactions, Journals and Conferences. He is an invited speaker for specialized technical areas like Clocking Solutions, High Speed Links and Capacitance Sensor Interfaces and non-technical areas like Design Thinking and Problem Solving, Research Methodologies, Technical Writing and Entrepreneurship Skills.
