Title:Mixed Signal Analogue
Long Title:Mixed Signal Analogue
Module Code:ELTR6026
 
Duration:1 Semester
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Fundamental
Field of Study: Electronic Engineering
Valid From: Semester 1 - 2020/21 ( September 2020 )
Module Delivered in 3 programme(s)
Module Coordinator: MARTIN HILL
Module Author: MARTIN HILL
Module Description: This module gives the student a sound knowledge of the principles and practice with CMOS ANALOG circuits. The theoretical aspects of the module will be supported by practical laboratory sessions. The Labs will use standard simulation software to simulate a range of CMOS analog circuits. The emphasis will be on measuring and predicting the performance of these circuits from small signal MOSFET models.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Explain the operation of the analog aspects of the MOSFET up to the development of its small signal model .
LO2 Explain the operation of a MOSFET current mirror, a MOSFET current source and a simple CMOS gain stage.
LO3 Explain the frequency response of a simple gain stage, (n-channel input loaded with a p-channel & capacitor).
LO4 Explain the operation and relevant equations of a CMOS differential stage.
LO5 Explain the operation and relevant equations for a two stage CMOS amplifier.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations

This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named MTU module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).

Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
No incompatible modules listed
