  • Manufacturing technologies and -methods for integrated circuits (CMOS (bulk, SOI), BiCMOS)
  • Device spectrum, process variations, yield, tolerances and soft-faults
  • Principles of layout-design for analog and mixed-signal circuits (matched-layout)
  • Design methodology and tools of computer-aided design for integrated mixed-signal electronics (Hierarchical design, mixed-mode, mixed-signal, AHDLs)
  • Simple (SPICE-level 1) and advanced device models (e.g., BSIM-models)
  • Rehearsal of basic circuits & building blocks for integrated analog electronics (References etc.)
  • Design techniques for applications-specific cells and blocks: selection, sizing, simulation, layout, extraction, post-layout simulation for application-specific (single-ended and fully-differential) operational amplifiers (OpAmp/OTA), RC-, GmC-, SC-Filters, AD/DA-converters, VCO etc.
  • Extension to analysis of temperature drift and statistical influence from manufacturing tolerances (parametric, Monte-Carlo, and corner analysis etc.)
  • Modeling, design and layout realization of digital circuits as components in integrated mixed-signal electronics, related signal integrity issues
  • Advanced issues: Noise, analog synthesis, testing, reconfiguration, eigen- or self calibration, self-monitoring/-repair, adaptation
