Advanced analog IC design

(Fiche de cours pas encore validée par la section)

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.
