A Crash Course on Analog and Digital Microelectronics. With the new investments in semiconductors and chips by both the government and private sector, there will be an incredible need for design engineers who can participate in this vibrant job market. This course will address this real demand by offering an insightful understanding of the basics of analog and digital electronics. The course is comprised of sixteen sessions,

each taking around 40-45 minutes. It covers the design, simulation, and layout of metal-oxide-semiconductor (MOS) transistors, basic analog amplifiers, and basic digital logic circuits in an efficient presentation setting. The course provides a step-by-step analysis and design of (1) widely used analog amplifiers including common-source, common-gate, source follower, and cascode stages as well as an analysis of gain and input/output impedances, and (2) logic circuits including CMOS inverters, NAND, NOR,

and general Boolean functions as well as introduction to performance parameters such as noise margin and propagation delay. For each circuit being covered, the design tips and the layout will be provided. All the concepts will be clarified by many examples. The course is intended for junior- and senior-level students in the field of electrical and computer engineering, (2) engineers in other engineering fields who are interested in gaining knowledge of microelectronics, (3) graduate students from different engineering fields who are interested in learning about semiconductor devices and circuits.

Who this course is for:

  • This course is intended for junior- and senior-level undergraduate students, electrical engineers who consider pursuing a job in a growing semiconductor market, and graduate-level engineering students who are interested in a hands-on knowledge of microelectronic circuits
