Comprehensive introduction to analog microelectronic design with an emphasis on ultra-low-power electronics, biomedical electronics, and bio-inspired electronics. Device physics of the MOS transistor, including subthreshold operation and scaling to nanometer processes. Ultra-low-noise, RF, sensor, actuator, and feedback circuits. System examples vary from year to year and include implantable and noninvasive biomedical systems, circuits inspired by neurobiology or cell biology, micromechanical systems (MEMS), and biological sensing and actuating systems. Class project involves a complete design of a VLSI chip, including layout, verification, design-rule checking, and SPICE simulation. 8 Engineering Design Points.
