This workshop takes on the fundamentals, tradeoffs and optimization principles of the subtle art of CMOS transistor-level analog design, employing a practical approach utilizing “Cadence Virtuoso” without lengthy mathematical expressions or rigorous circuit models.
The workshop specifically focuses on the design of CMOS operational amplifiers, the most essential transistor-level blocks in analog circuits and systems.
We also take on the art of analog layout, principles of CMOS IC fabrication, layout rules and analog layout techniques necessary for a successful analog design engineer.
