This course covers topics of interest in integrated circuits for students at the graduate level. The course content is specifically designed by the instructor.
In this course, a new technology trend in electronics, flexible electronics, will be discussed and studied. The fundamental concept of flexible devices and materials including fabrication process will be introduced, and the applications of flexible electronics to TFTs, Display, Solar cell, and Sensors are also discussed.
This course is designed to provide graduate students with design capability of the millimeter-wave and terahertz integrated circuits and application systems. The course starts with the active/passive device models for active and passive circuits on silicon. On-chip antenna, Beam-forming and radar blocks will be also studied for multi-Gbps wireless communication and wireless sensor applications.
The purpose of this course is to provide the basic principles and technological developments in semiconductor optoelectronic devices and their applications. This lecture covers optical properties of semiconductor materials, operating principles of semiconductor light sources, photodetectors, and image sensing devices along with recent research trends as well as their system applications, such as high-speed optoelectronic signal processing and passive/active optical image sensing.(Prerequisite: EE362)
