Teaching methods

The implementation of analog circuits will be addressed in the lectures at different abstraction levels: device, circuit,and system.

Design projects will be assigned to the student.

Assessment methods

The assessment is based on a single individual oral examination, and on design projects (not compulsory).

Teaching tools

Recommended readings. Slides and lecture notes.

Circuit simulations with LTSpice.
