This course covers fundamentals of noise in analog integrated circuits and electronic systems and how to cope with it. Emphasis is placed on the principles of various stochastic and signal processing methods and architectures as well as detailed circuit techniques to reduce noise.
This course starts with the basic circuits for the design of BJT and CMOS amplifiers. The topics include the frequency response of amplifiers, feedback, an introduction to analog integrated circuits, various types of amplifier output stages, the study of an analog filter, oscillator, and signal generators.
