ECE4130J – Monolithic Amplifier Circuits


Chang-Ching Tu

Credits: 4 credits

Pre-requisites: ECE3110J Obtained Credit


Working principles and design considerations of CMOS circuits, particularly operational amplifiers with or without feedback. Main topics include: frequency response, negative feedback, operational amplifiers and stability of operational amplifiers. On the project side, as a major-design-experience (MDE) course, this course allows students to go through a complete circuit design process, from the inception of a concept, to simulation, to breadboard testing, to PCB layout and finally the demonstration of functions designed.

Course Topics:

  1. Differential pair amplifiers with active current mirrors
  2. Frequency response
  3. Negative feedback
  4. Operational amplifiers
  5. Final project
