Workshop on Analog VLSI Design

Workshop on Analog VLSI Design on 22-23 January, 2016 at C-DAC, Bangalore

Workshop Overview

Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Bangalore is organizing two days workshop on Analog VLSI Design on 22-23 January, 2016. The two days workshop deals with the design of various building blocks for Analog VLSI. The following topics will be covered in the workshop.

  • Analog fundamentals-CMOS-OPAMP-OTA fundamentals
  • Fundamentals of filter design
  • Design methodologies such as Active RC filters, OTA-C filters, Current-mode filters, Switched capacitor filters
  • Effect of non-ideal passive and active components such as tolerances of components
  • Finite gain, bandwidth of active devices, noise of passive and active devices, offset of active devices, parasitics due to interconnections as well as inherent parasitic
  • Design choices for low power supply voltage designs
  • Recent trends in filter design for various mobile devices using GSM, CDMA.W-CDMA, Bluetooth technologies etc.
  • Design of other analog building blocks such as current sources, voltage references, A/D converters, D/A converters and especially Sigma-delta converters of both discrete-time and continuous time types
  • PLL Design, Basics of RF CMOS design, Analog layout, Analog Fault diagnosis, SPICE analysis of various circuits
