|Analog integrated circuits require less and less power consumption despite the increasing needs for higher speeds and lower noise. This course brings design guidelines towards achieving optimum compromises between speed and noise for a wide range of analog circuit designs, with focus on communications. |
All important aspects of analog design are covered, from the design of multi-stage operational amplifiers to switched-capacitor and continuous-time filters for Sigma‐delta AD Converters. High speed ADCs and DACs, and communication circuits such as LNA’s, VCO’s and synthesizers are included as well.
The course will be given live between November 17th 2020 – January 21st 2021,
on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, between 15:00 -16:30 o’clock.
UPDATE: The course will have to be offered online (only a slight chance to switch to physical presence in the course of the semester).
Due to the design project at the end, the number of participants will be limited. The place assignment will be done according to the ECE department algorithm.
The course contains topics for lectures of 1.5 hour. The dates are given below. Some material is taken from Sansen’s book “Analog Design Essentials”, Springer 2006. All presentations have been updated. At the end a design exercise will be organized as an exam.

|This course is aimed at designers of analog circuits who already know about the laws of Ohm and Kirchoff, and know how to draw simple Bode diagrams. It focuses on systematic approaches of design tasks. It handles elementary circuit techniques to start with, followed by many second-order effects such as CMRR, PSRR, etc.|
|The reduction of the power consumption in analog integrated circuits leads to lower speed and higher noise levels. This course provides design guidelines and techniques towards optimum performance. Many important aspects of analog design are covered, from the design of fully-differential operational amplifiers and filters, to the design of oscillators, Sigma-delta AD Converters and analog-digital coupling effects.|
This course is aimed at several categories of designers:
- novice designers to learn about design plans, such that they can master the art of optimum design for low-power
- digital designers to be able to design and to include low-power analog blocks on digital system chips
- designers with analog experience, to update their design knowledge and to tune their experience to the present-day design procedure
This course will consist of a series of lectures and several design exercises. Some lectures are taken from the book “Analog Design Essentials” (Springer 2006) which have been updated for this course. The exercises are taken from existing designs and will allow the participants to develop their own understanding and insight.

01. Comparison of MOST and bipolar-transistor models

The course will be given by Professor Willy Sansen of the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven in Belgium. He has a PhD degree from the University of California, Berkeley and has been visiting professor at the Universities of Stanford, Lausanne, Philadelphia and Ulm.
He has given courses for a large number of companies including Philips, National Semiconductor, Analog Devices, Alcatel and for numerous universities.
From 1984 to 2006 he was head of the ESAT-MICAS group on analog IC design. He is cofounder of the workshops on Advances in Analog Circuit Design in Europe. He was the program chair of the ISSCC-2002 conference and the president of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society in 2008-2009. In 2011 he received the D.O Pederson Award.
He has been involved in design automation and in numerous integrated circuit designs for communications, consumer electronics, medical applications and sensors. He has been supervisor of over sixty-five PhD theses in these fields. He has authored and co-authored more than 650 papers in international journals and conference proceedings, and thirteen books, which include the text book "Analog Design Essentials" (Springer 2006).
A practical design of an amplifier towards certain specifications is done. A design task is given and supervised.
