Circuits et systèmes électroniques

Ce cours présente l'analyse et la conception des circuits et systèmes électroniques sous forme discrète et intégrée. L'accent est mis sur les applications dans le domaine des télécommunications.

Advanced analog IC design

Since the MOS transistor is the basic component of device-level analog circuit design, in this course a strong emphasis will be given on its basic theory: structure and definitions; calculation of surface field and potential, total charge, mobile inversion charge, pinch-off voltage, gate capacitance

IC design for robustness

For over 5 decades, technology scaling has served to reduce the cost of electronic components and functionality. This course deals with the trade-off between analog and digital in the nanometer era. A number of concrete examples will be used to illustrate the possible trade-offs.
