analog integrated circuit

The continuing development of silicon technology and the growing demand for more signal processing and functionality integrated on a single chip, has resulted in a growing need for the design of effective analog integrated circuits.
Analog circuits and systems have an important role in the implementation and application of silicon technology across a wide range of frequencies and for many functions. At all stages in the economic cycle having circuit designers with effective analog skills can give organisations a vital competitive edge, so they need to ensure that their engineers are appropriately skilled in their understanding of analog design techniques to meet current needs.
The reduction of power consumption in analog integrated circuits inevitably leads to higher noise levels, presenting a major challenge in present-day circuit designs. This course aims at developing design guidelines towards achieving optimum performance for low power and low noise simultaneuously.
Moreover the bipolar transistors, which are available in BiCMOS technologies, always offer less power consumption for the same equivalent input noise, which results in a renewed interest in BiCMOS. In this site BiCMOS and CMOS are treated in parallel, with many actual circuits designed and compared.
