Assignment to Modules

Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks *The devices of a CMOS-process: MOSFETs, Resistors, Capacitors, parasitic Elements. *Modelling of the MOSFET: Shichman-Hodges-Model, Weak Inversion, Velocity Saturation, Small Signal Model, CAD Models. *Single transistor basic circuits: Common source, drain and gate configuration, active loads. *Basic circuits with several transistors: Current mirror, cascode, folded cascode, differential pair, bias generation, matching. *Dynamic analysis: Basic circuits, dominant pole estimation, gain bandwidth, miller theorem. *Feedback circuits: The four basic feedback types, loop gain, Blackman's impedance transformation, gain estimation. *Dynamik and stability in feedback circuits: Nyquist criterium, phase and gain margin, overshoot, compensation, pole splitting, slew rate. *Construction of operational amplifiers: Miller OTA, symmetrical OTA, folded cascode OTA, offset estimation. *Remarks: The usage of circuit simulators (PSPICE) is a special focus, a link between hand calculation and simulation should be established. The simulations should be performed as voluntary home projects, the tasks will be given as design problemswithout a solution scheme.
