Teaching

ECE 511: Analog Electronics

  • Beginning graduate-level course covering the following topics: MOS device physics review, single-stage amplifiers, bias networks, operational amplifiers, feedback networks, frequency response, stability, and noise. [course catalog].
  • Text: (choose ONE of the following)
    • Carusone, Johns, and Martin, Analog Integrated Circuit Design, 2nd ed., Wiley, 2012.
    • Gray, Hurst, Lewis, and Meyer, Analysis and Design of Analog Integrated Circuits, 5th ed., Wiley, 2009.
  • I teach this course every Fall semester.
  • Distance education sections have been offered from 2011 onward.

ECE 712: Integrated Circuits for Wireless Communications

  • Advanced graduate-level course covering the following topics: silicon IC technology choices, integrated passive components, matching networks, distributed circuits, RF amplifiers, noise parameters, active and passive mixers, receivers, transmitters, phase-locked loops, and voltage-controlled oscillators  [course catalog].
  • Text: Behzad Razavi, RF Microelectronics, 2nd edition, Prentice Hall, New Jersey, 2012
  • I teach this course every Spring semester.
  • Distance education sections have been offered from 2012 onward.

ECE 792: Design of Millimeter-Wave Integrated Circuits and Systems

  • Special-topics graduate-level course covering the following topics: silicon IC technology at mmWave, radio link budgets, beamformers, amplifiers, phase shifters, oscillators, mixers, transmit/receive front-ends, phased-arrays, receivers, transmitters, radars, and radiometers. Emphasis will be placed on differences encountered in mmWave IC design as compared to RFIC design due to technology capabilities and/or application requirements.
  • Text: Sorin Voinigescu, High-Frequency Integrated Circuits, 1st ed., Cambridge, 2013
  • I plan to teach this course in Spring semesters every other year, beginning in Spring 2018.
  • Distance education sections will be offered from 2021 onward.
