Admission information


Upon successful completion of the lab the students are able to design and verify transistor level integrated analog circuits and small systems for voltage regulation using a circuit design software according to a given specification. They are able to apply methods like temperature compensation and feedback loop frequency compensation.


Starting from sizing and checking a simple CMOS circuit, in the course of the lab a complete linear power supply or a complete bandgap reference system with temperature compensation will be designed using Cadence simulation software and schematic Editor.


Solid-State and Semiconductor Device Physics, Analog and Mixed-Signal Electronics


The module is examined in form of a lab performance with the following components: • The performance of the circuits designed during the lab according to the given specification is evaluated. • The design, its performance and presentation is presented in a 10 minutes talk (5 mins. each group member). • The students will write a documentation of their design and its performance. This group report (10 - 15 pages).

Recommended literature

Working instructions and computer + software (Cadence Design environment) will be provided
